Medical geology is the study of geoenvironmental impacts on human, animal and plant health and involves medical, veterinary, agricultural, biological and geological scientists. Due to the increasing importance of this subject area, the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS) Co-geoenvironment Programme recently initiated a Medical Geology Working Group to improve networking amongst the various disciplines. The Group, which is lead by Dr Olle Selinus of the Swedish Geological Survey, will also produce a definitive textbook on Medical Geology.
