A Discussion on Geodiversity Definitions

Many definitions of ‘geodiversity’, can be found in Britain and also the wider world, although the term appears to be mostly restricted to Europe and Australia. These definitions vary from one to the next, but what they appear to have in common is a desire to be very inclusive in what they define as ‘geodiversity’. In general all definitions could be said to ‘agree’ on what geodiversity is, although there is some uncertainty and possible disagreement on the role of cultural aspects in geodiversity.
