Abstract:The objectives of this study were to: 1) Conduct cave invertebrate surveys in 15 known caves within the Park; 2) Develop complete cave invertebrate species composition lists for inventoried caves within the Park; 3) Identify potential threats to cave invertebrate populations and develop management strategies for caves harboring endemic and sensitive species based on the ecological and biological information available for the collected taxa; and, 4) Create a biological database that will allow GRBA personnel to create a GIS data layer of cave invertebrate species composition in the caves within the Park.
