For most of its history, biospeleology has been a poor cousin of the other speleological disciplines
Our series of interviews with leading karstologists now turns to cave biologist. David Culver, an emeritus professor of environmental science at the American University (Washington DC, USA), talks about his relationship to karst and what subterranean biology has given to the geoscientific disciplines and what it has taken from them. His science approach is well reflected in the statement: “In the last few decades, I have done valuable little completely independent research, and collaboration with people with different skill groups has been critical”.
