Watson et al. (eds) 1997, 9p :………………..

” It is fundamentally important to recognise that the proper protection of caves and karst is not just a matter of preserving interesting, beatiful or scientifically interesting natural features. In most cases, protection has far-reaching environmental implications which in turn generate significant economic impact. in particular proper management of karst is an essential element of water resource management” ……
