About this book

This book examines the living natural history of caves - the flora and fauna, their habits and habitats. It also explains what they tell us of the past - sediments in caves often contain the remains of long extinct species, such as hyaena, and also human remains. The author uses his extensive knowledge of cave systems around the world to present a cohesive account of this unique and extraordinary ecosystem.
