Admiral's Stalagmite Report

type of resource: Article | publication: ISCA 5th Congress Proceedings

This history chronicles the epic story of the stalagmite that was removed from Admiral’s Cave in Bermuda in 1819 by Admiral Sir David Milne. The account records the known events, from the time that this huge stalagmite was removed from the cave, its journey abroad, and events up to the time of its demise, far away from the place that it was created.

As regards the rules and regulations concerning the “touristization” of underground environments, both natural and artificial (caves, mines, military fortifications, etc.), it is necessary to ensure the safety of visitors and members of staff. In Italy specific laws were passed with reference to European and international regulations concerning electrical systems, structural work, air monitoring in caves and all matters concerning the safety of those places whose use is comparable to that of a place of public entertainment. Below you will find specifications and law references.

Lampflora Removal Methodology

type of resource: Methodology

The methodology provides a summary of suitable procedures and preventive measures to remove and control the growth of undesirable flora growths, which turns up near light sources in caves accessible for tourists. The internationally accepted term for these stands is lampenflora. The methodology is compiled on the basis of more than 30 years of experience with removing lampenflora in accessible caves of the Moravský kras, Czech Republic, and also abroad. Adhering to recommended procedures and preventive measures quoted in this methodology can fairly solve the problem of vegetation around cave lamps.

A team from the Czech and Slovak republics, lead by Doctor Natália Martínková from the Institute of Vertebrate Biology of the Academy of Science of the Czech Republic and Professor Horáček from Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic, found that over a tenth of bats hibernating in caves and mines may be infected with fungus Geomyces destructans in the region. Recording increase in incidence of Geomyces destructans infection on that scale is unique in Europe and has never been seen before. In North America, Geomyces destructans has been associated with white-nose syndrome that has already caused drastic mortality in hibernating bats. The scientists published their results on Friday in a peer-reviewed scientific journal, PLoS ONE.

Gaps exist in our understanding of how tourism development affects natural World Heritage Sites, including the nature and extent of different types of impacts from tourism in and around sites, and the underlying reasons for these. The aim of this study is to examine the aforementioned gaps in order to support the development of sustainable tourism in natural World Heritage Sites.Through an increased understanding of the risks and opportunities associated to tourism development and growth in World Heritage, this study hopes to encourage tourism development that while protecting the integrity of the site, also brings income generation opportunities for local communities associated with World Heritage Sites, offers financial and other support for the conservation of the sites, and contributes to visitors’ awareness about the values of nature.

Paleolithic cave art is an exceptional archive of early human symbolic behavior, but because obtaining reliable dates has been difficult, its chronology is still poorly understood after more than a century of study. We present uranium-series disequilibrium dates of calcite deposits overlying or underlying art found in 11 caves, including the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage sites of Altamira, El Castillo, and Tito Bustillo, Spain. The results demonstrate that the tradition of decorating caves extends back at least to the Early Aurignacian period, with minimum ages of 40.8 thousand years for a red disk, 37.3 thousand years for a hand stencil, and 35.6 thousand years for a claviform-like symbol. These minimum ages reveal either that cave art was a part of the cultural repertoire of the first anatomically modern humans in Europe or that perhaps Neandertals also engaged in painting caves.

WNS presentation 6th Congress

type of resource: Presentation | publication: ISCA 6th Congress Proceedings

White-nose syndrome has devastated bat populations across the eastern United States during the past four years, causing “the most precipitous wildlife decline in the past century in North America,” according to biologists. And it keeps spreading into new areas. It has moved north into Canada, south into Tennessee and as far east as Oklahoma. Ultimately, bats all across North America are at risk. This presentation will provide the latest information on White-nose Syndrome and its spread, and discuss how WNS is impacting show caves and what show caves and other agencies are doing to help.
