This website is for sharing information and literature about cave biology or biospeleology, speleobiology, subterranean biology, groundwater biology, and related subjects such as biogeography, ecology, systematics, and evolutionary studies. Cave biologists and cavers are invited to send me files to post. Email me at speodesmus@gmail.com

I converted cavelife.info to a secure website on 11 November 2020, https://cavelife.info/

Astyanax cavefishes    See the abstract, contents, and download selected chapters and appendices from the 2018 book, The Astyanax Caves of Mexico. Or download the whole book and regional map (large pdfs) from the Papers by Elliott et al. page.

Videos: Two videos: Elliott’s 58-min. Zoom talk, Cavefishes of Mexico: Biology and Hydrogeology (2020), about the 13 species of cavefishes in Mexico. (The Zoom recording was truncated because of time limits, but I re-recorded it in higher quality.)  Plus, a video from Zoom, the 30-min. discussion after the cavefishes talk with the Bexar Grotto, San Antonio, Texas, and a couple of experts from Mexico. You can stream it or download it.
