Publisher: Comenius University in Bratislava 2012
Number of pages: 169
This volume summarizes the main scientific results of expeditions to the tepuis of Venezuela between 2002 and 2011. The major research described in this monograph is dedicated to the great caves discovered in Roraima and Churi tepuis. The geological research was accompanied by biological research on cave and surface fauna, with a special focus on malacofauna, herpetofauna and insects. Although some of the data from this research has been previously published in scientific articles, it did not always obtain the justifiable space to present all gathered documentation and to elucidate all relevant scientific problems from a greater perspective.
