Bulmer and Bohemia Cave Biodiversity Notes
Karst landscapes can be found worldwide with varying degrees of protection and conservation (Gillieson 2022). These landscapes include, within them, subterranean biodiversity systems. These ecosystems are home to a variety of different groups of species at different stages of adaptation to underground environments. Generally, they are stable long-term environments for their inhabitants, compared to shorter term surface systems such as forests, rivers and wetlands. These systems are poorly understood, making it difficult to give good information to landowners, councils, and government departments on methods for conservation and protection.
