Aquatic Records

Aquatic Records

The karst map provides the basic template for analyzing the distribution of cave species. Almost without exception, all caves occur within the karst areas. There were a few records of cave-dwelling species from outside karst areas (mostly springs) but the data was trimmed to fit within the karst areas, with a 1 km buffer to allow for errors in georeferencing). This map displays the aquatic records within karst areas in the Appalachian region.

Percentage of Karst Area within Grid Cell

Percentage of Karst Area within Grid Cell

Each cell represents the percent of karst within a 20 x 20 kilometer grid cell, a measure of habitat quantity. This attribute can be used to predict presence/absence of particular ecological groups in caves.

Cave Species Richness Hotspots

Cave Species Richness Hotspots

Caves with the most aquatic and terrestrial species. The number of species is highly dependent on sampling intensity, including the number of sampling trips.

Carbonate/Non-carbonate Contact Linear Sum

Carbonate/Non-carbonate Contact Linear Sum

Cumulative lengths of contacts between karst and non-karst, measuring both patchiness of available habitat and perhaps dispersal corridors if cave passages are differentially developed along these contacts. This information can be used to predict presence/absence of particular ecological groups in caves.

Single Grid Cell Endemics

Single Grid Cell Endemics

Many aquatic and terrestrial species are geographically rare, often found in a single cave. This map dis[;ays the geographic distribution of endemics scattered throughout the Appalachian LCC region.
