This thesis includes a wealth of cave maps, as well as photos of the caves and karst morphologies. At the heart of the thesis is the important discovery of a flank margin cave with speleothem hiatuses and fossil invertebrate associations. The analysis of the structural and karst morphological elements surveyed in the main explored caves in Monti di Capo San Vito has made it possible to identify both the state of control of the processes of karstification in tectonic phases during the Plio-Pleistocene upliftings and the kinematic character of some karstified structures, linked at two speleogenetic phases. Furthermore, the surveying of karst forms on the relict sea-cliffs and particularly the exceptional discovery and dating of marine and continental incrustations in the Rumena cave, has yielded essential advances in our knowledge of past climatic events and eustatic level changes in the Mediterranean, as well as their influence on the evolution of the coastal belt.

Rosario Ruggieri has a degree in Geological Science, at the University of Catania, with thesis in Hydrogeology and Karst phenomena of the Hyblean Plateau (Sicily); Ph.D. in Karstology at the University of Nova Gorica. Since 1978 working as a geologist, for oil researches, in the Sicily Channel and in the Sahara desert, then for civil works in Turkey, for the construction of the Eufrate Karakaia Dam, and in Libya. Since 1989 working as geologist-chief of Water Department of Ragusa Genio Civile of Sicily Region. In 1974 he founded the Hyblean Center for Speleo-Hydrogeological Researches with which, since 1988, he has organized and lead international karst researches in several countries such as Asia, Middle-east, Africa, Indonesia, central and south America. He has published several scientific works and collaborate with national and international editors.
