About this item

Though there has been a noticeable increase in peer-reviewed literature describing cave microbiology during the past 30 years, says Engel, this is the first book-length treatment, and provides an entry for students and researchers. The topics include microbiology in the Mammoth Cave region, bacterial and arachaeal diversity on cave speleothem and rock surfaces: a carbonate cave case study from Karchner Caverns, predicting bacterial diversity in caves associated with sulfuric acid speleogenesis, the diversity and ecology of microbes associated with lampenflora in cave and karst settings, and Lascaux Cave as an example of fragile ecological balance in subterranean environments.
