Rillenkarren in the British Isles, 1996, Vincent P. ,
This paper presents the first descriptions of rillenkarren in the British Isles. Rillenkarren are widely developed at two 'classic' karst locations, namely: the Burren coast of Co. Clare, Ireland, and the Morecambe Bay area of north west England. Rillenkarren are also found on hard Cretaceous chalks of Northern Ireland and Carboniferous limestones on the Anglesey coast, north Wales. The limestones at all sires are very hard, extremely pure and dolomite poor. A logit regression model is developed, based on published rillenkarren data from the Napier Range, Western Australia. The model suggests that the two rock properties, % calcite in the rock fabric and % calcite in the micrite cement are key variables in explaining the presence of rillenkarren. Within the context of the model, these two explanatory variables define a feasible domain for the development of rillenkarren. British rillenkarren data satisfy the conditions of this model

Occurrence of the well shrimp Niphargus aquilex (Crustacea: Niphargidae) in Anglesey, North Wales, UK, 2006, Bratton J. H.
The subterranean amphipod crustacean Niphargus aquilex Schidte is reported from Anglesey, Wales, for the first time. This record extends its known range in Britain and is farthest into the area covered by the Devensian ice, possibly supporting the theory that subterranean aquatic invertebrates survived within the glaciated area. The groundwater-inhabiting diving beetles Hydroporus longulus Mulsant & Rey and H. ferrugineus Stephens (Dytiscidae) were found at the same site, the first records of these species from Anglesey.

Cave deposits of North Wales: some comments on their archaeological importance and an inventory of sites of potential interest, 2013, Dinni R. , Ebbs C.

Several caves in North Wales have yielded archaeological and palaeontological material of undoubted interest. Most notably, two caves in Denbighshire are the only archaeological sites in Western Europe to lie north of the Last Glacial Maximum limits and yet still contain archaeological material pre-dating it, offering a rare glimpse of what has been lost elsewhere. Although many North Welsh caves are documented in the scientific and caving literature the record of sites is dispersed and incomplete. Comments are offered here on the archaeological contents of these caves, and more generally about the current record of caves in the region. A selected inventory of sites that may be of potential interest to archaeologists is presented.
