21st Annual National Cave and Karst Mangement Symposium

I attended and presented at the 21st Annual National Cave and Karst Management Symposium held October 19-23 in the heart of the south-central Kentucky karst in the Mammoth Cave region. The venue for NCKMS 2015 was the Cave City Convention Center located in Cave City, Kentucky. The theme for NCKMS 2015 was “Hidden Landscapes-Hidden Challenges.” NCKMS 2015 was hosted by Cave Research Foundation, Mammoth Cave National Park, and Western Kentucky University.

I gave a 20-minute presentation titled “Genus-wide assessment of Bactrurus (Amphipoda: Crangonyctidae) informs conservation and management of groundwater habitats” co-authored with Steve Taylor.
