||Volume 9 -- Environmental Mineralogy: Microbial Interactions, Anthropogenic Influences, Contaminated Land and Waste Management.
Edited by J.D. Cotter-Howells, L.S. Campbell, E. Valsami-Jones and M. Batchelder (2000) 413 pp. ISBN 0-903056-20-8 Mineralogists have always sought to understand the chemical and physical environment under which a particular mineral forms and to determine the arrangement of atoms within that mineral. The new field of Environmental Mineralogy asks the same questions in a different context and seeks to define the roles of minerals in natural ecosystems, together with understanding the preservation and restoration of such systems This book provides an up-to-date account of the state of this diverse subject area and will appeal to both senior undergraduate students and researchers alike.

||Volume 2 -- Classic Papers in Structure Topology.
papers selected and commentary by F.C. Hawthorne (2006) 301 pp. ISBN 0-903056-23-2 Prof. Frank Hawthorne of the University of Manitoba re-examines a series of seminal papers which help us to focus on the key issues concerning structural connectivity in inorganic solids, of which minerals are a key component. and to look at where we are today in our understanding of crystal structures. Diego Gatta in Mineralogical Magazine writes that, "the publication of these landmark papers, accompanied by Hawthorne's comentaries, will be useful not only for undergraduate or PhD students, but for all structural mineralogists. This collection provides valuable insights into the evolution of structural mineralogy and its wider application to petrology.

||Volume 3 -- Classic Papers in Metamorphic Petrology.
papers selected and commentary by B. W. Evans (2007). 319 pp. ISBN 978-0-903056-24-3 Metamorphic Petrology is a field that was barely defined at the beginning of the 20th century, but blossomed rapidly to a point where many of the first order problems had been resolved by the century's end opening up a whole range of new research opportunities. Professor Bernard Evans of the University of Washington has selected a collection of papers from diverse sources and his valuable commentary on each paper places it in the context of what has gone before. The papers document the major achievements of the field, but also the new challenges that it has set itself.

- Barrovian metamorphism
- The metamorphic facies
- Metamorphism of limestone and the petrogenetic grid
- Composition projections
- Mixed volatiles
- Thermal models of collision belts
- Mineral thermometry

- Fluid driven metamorphism
- Kinetics: experiment and theory
- Ultra-high pressure metamorphism

||Volume 4 -- Classic Papers in Granite Petrogenesis.
papers selected and commentary by John (JC) Clemens and Fernando Bea (2012). 343 pp. ISBN 978-0-903056-30-4 A compilation of landmark papers on granite petrogenesis is overdue. This volume is organized into a number of sections that represent what the editors regard as the main research fields in which progress has been made in understanding granites and their genesis. The origin of granitic magmas is part of the cycle that unites tectonic processes with the generation of mantle magma, crustal growth, the transfer of mantle heat to the crust, high-grade regional metamorphism, crustal melting and crustal differentiation. The extended subject area is far too wide to deal with in a single volume and therefore the selection has been limited to papers dealing with the formation, physical behaviour and chemical evolution of granitic magmas, and just touching on the matter of associated ore deposits.
John (JC) Clemens and Fernando Bea are world experts on the subject of granite petrogenesis. Clemens' most important work has been on the origin and evolution of granites and silicic volcanic magmas, experimental studies and modelling of partial melting and the ascent and chemical evolution of granitic magmas, and these continue to be his main interests. Bea's research interests have been in the petrology and geochemistry of granite rocks and the mechanisms of generation of granite magmas, having studied in detail the role of heat-producing elements.

The third edition of An Introduction to the Rock-Forming Minerals has been published by the Mineralogical SocietyThe Mineralogical Society of Great Britain and Ireland. Each volume contains a collection of previously published papers covering a key area of the mineral sciences.
In this edition, most of the commonly occurring minerals of igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks are discussed in terms of structure, chemistry, optical and other physical properties, distinguishing features and paragenesis. Important correlations between these aspects of mineralogy are emphasized wherever possible. The content of each section has been updated where needed in the light of published research over the 21 years between editions. Tables of over 200 chemical analyses and formulae are included and a number of older entries have been replaced by more recent examples.
Major new features:
- Entirely new views of crystal structures in perspective using CrystalMaker colour images; Free CrystalViewer interactive CD with >100 mineral structures included (download the latest version of the minerals library here)
- Over 60 colour photographs of minerals in thin sections of rocks under the petrological microscope
- Considerably expanded treatment of feldspar and zeolite minerals
- Mineral identification table based on birefringence and listing other properties
- Colour strip with appropriate interference colours and birefringences for the main rock-forming minerals
This book will be useful to undergraduate students of mineralogy, petrology and geochemistry, especially those at third or fourth year, engaged in more advanced courses or specialized projects, and also as a reference work for students for 'Masters' degrees by taught courses or research. For doctorate students, and research workers in the Earth Sciences as well as those in Materials Science and other related disciplines, this work can be useful as a condensed version of the very extensive treatment presented in the volumes of the DHZ Series Rock-Forming Minerals, second edition.
