Editorial Reviews


P. Wood, Dept. of Geography, Loughborough University, UK
This is a timely and long-awaited book, which provides a valuable synthesis of research on subterranean ecosystems across the globe. ...The editors and publishers have clearly spent a long time preparing and organising this book and as a result the reader is led logically through the chapters. Anyone, even with little or no previous knowledge of subterranean biology, could pick up this book and learn all the fundamental points in the first few chapters. The fine details, such as the systematic list of genera and the 840page index of authors, organisms and an extensive general index, make this book a remarkable resource. ...It is a must for any cave biology enthusiast and cave club library.
Cave and Karst Science, Vol. 27, No. 3
(translated from Dutch) It is up-to-date, written by experts, contains many illustrations, the most recent references, and offers in 8 parts and 36 chapters not only a good overview of what is known about the ecology of the subterranean environment but provides unusual and fascinating examples.
Speleo Nederland, Pierk 4
This magnificent tome is number 30 in the series Ecosystems of the World. Subterranean Ecosystems brings together chapters compiled by researchers from the perspective of their own studies which exemplify different aspects of research into subsurface ecosystems.(...)After reading this book, it is difficult not to become enthused about the lives and environment of the mini-creatures who live their lives in the underworld. Undoubtedly it is a volume of great scientific value, but nevertheless it reveals a plethora of interesting material regarding the evolution of the underground world.
The British Caver, Vol. 124
D. Jaume
...it should be on the library shelves of every academic institution.
