Studies on the Caves and Cave Fauna of the Yucatan Peninsula

Edited by James R. Reddell
296 pages
(PDF reprint 2005)

This volume includes the first results of an intensive study of the cavernicole and related endogean fauna of the Yucatan Peninusla. Also included are accounts of species from other parts of Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize. The long final article, which was also originally published as an offprint, discusses the geology and physiography of the Yucatan and the history of cave studies there and also contains brief descriptions of all caves that have been biologically investigated in the Mexican part of the peninsula.
