About this book

Language: German

Connected to each other in a linear fashion, the caves of Austria that have so far been explored would be reach from Vienna to Madrid. Höhlen und Karst in Österreich gives a unique insight into these fascinating underground landscapes, which are, for the most part, difficult to access.

For the first nationwide survey of the Austrian karst and cave studies, the editors were able to draw on the contributions of 49 experienced cave explorers and scientists. Thirty-five contributed chapters provide general information about the current status of geology and biology, history of exploitation and culture, as well as research technology and documentation of the Austrian caves. In 20 regional chapters, all major karst areas from the Rätikon, a mountain range of the Central Eastern Alps, to the edge of the Vienna basin are presented.

Summary in German:
Aneinandergereiht würden die bislang erforschten Höhlen Österreichs von Wien bis Madrid reichen. Höhlen und Karst in Österreich gibt auf 750 Seiten einen einzigartigen Einblick in diese faszinierenden unterirdischen Landschaften, die zum größten Teil nur schwer zugänglich sind.

Für die erste bundesweite Leistungsschau der österreichischen Karst- und Höhlenkunde konnten die Herausgeber 49 erfahrene Höhlenforscher und Wissenschaftler gewinnen. 35 Beiträge informieren allgemein verständlich über den aktuellen Stand von Geologie und Biologie, Nutzungs- und Kulturgeschichte sowie Erforschungstechnik und Dokumentation der österreichischen Höhlen. In 20 re gionalen Kapiteln werden alle größeren Karstgebiete vom Rätikon bis zum Rand des Wiener Beckens vorgestellt.
