Comments about the books:

Dr. Dennis Allsopp,  co-author of "Introduction to biodeterioration"
Cambridge University Press. Sometime President of the International
Biodeterioration and Biodegradation Society  and The International
Biodeterioration Research Group (IBRG), wrote about the Glossaries:

   "There is always a need for authoritative glossaries and
    dictionaries, but few scholars have the resolve or enthusiasm to
    begin such works, let alone develop and refine them over time.
    Any new work will be open to criticism for incompleteness,
    balance, utility and arrangement of material. Such ventures are
    on-going and are never truly finished, but become more and more
    useful as they evolve and grow. The appearance of the first
    three volumes of this new work, which seeks to include material
    from many disciplines, is to be greatly applauded. If the
    initial impetus is maintained over the years, this glossary will
    no doubt become a major world reference work in modern
    conservation studies."
