Abstract

This article outlines the fundamental connections between geodiversity and biodiversity by providing a geoconservation perspective on the concept of 'conserving nature's stage' as a basis for safeguarding both geodiversity and biodiversity in the face of environmental and climate change. Conserving nature's stage – the physical environment in which species exist – provides a means of developing more integrated approaches to nature conservation, delivering benefits for both geodiversity and biodiversity conservation, and incorporating key principles of geoconservation in the management of protected and conserved areas.
