Abstract

 As part of the set geodiversity role in shaping the Nature reserve fund of Ukraine. The history of the emergence of the concept: geodiversity. Historical background of geological monuments as a new category of Natural reserve fund Ukraine. Create geosites, geotops and geopark as a way to protect geodiversity. The problem of preserving the diversity of abiotic world for future generations.Key words: nature Reserve Fund of Ukraine, geodiversity, geosites, geopark.
