Looks at caves as physical, geological and biological phenomena. Much useful data on cave ecosystem interactions.

Provides the most comprehensive description of karst management yet encountered in an English language text ... a welcome addition to the bookshelves of cavers and karst scientists alike Chas Yonge "A valuable and timely addition to the speleological literature and seems destined to become entrenched as the standard of its time." Progress in Physical Geography "More than 20 years have elapsed since publication of the previous English-language book to treat the science of caves, so the time was ripe for a good review ... Gillieson provides it here." Derek Ford, Ground Water "In this book there is a lot that is useful and intersting to everyone, from theorist to practical person. Gillieson's book is an excellent and useful work as much for students as for karstologists and experts. Everyone can find a lot that is new and interesting." Andrej Kranjc, Acta Carsologica "Reading through this book I found that I suddenly understood things which I had previously found a bit of a mystery. One of the really attractive things about this book is its price. It is available at... a fraction of the cost of most textbooks." Clive Wells, The International Caver
