Karst Waters Institute Special Publication 15:
Select Field Guides to Cave and Karst Lands of the United States
This book is a new project for KWI, and a deviation from other Special Publications. The main goal of the book is to provide an educational ensemble of detailed , authoritative field guides for cave and karst areas of the United States. The book includes seven previously published, but updated, guides that were a part of earlier Special Publications (associated with KWI conferences). To broaden the scope of the book, five new and two other updated, previously published guides were written by associates of KWI. The guides predominately focus on the geology and hydrology of a specific region, but cultural history, biological diversity, and anthropogenic issues are also highlighted by some. Formal road or cave logs are included. The diverse assortment of guides should provide an entertaining mix of information for the reader, the traveler, and the explorer.
