You can download these publications following the links to PDF files on respective original websites.

As a part of collaboration within the HypoKarst, we suggest that the project members inform each other about their own and other published works relevant to the topic. An easy way to do this, and generally promote the readership for your papers, is to submit publications to the KarstBase through the online submission form.

(One needs to be registered to access the form)

By including words “hypogene” or “hypogenic” in the keywords (if they are not present within the title), you’ll make the publication appearing in the respective search selection that represens current bibliography on hypogene karst/speleogenesis.

Check this link regularly if you want to stay updated on current publications in the field.

Best wishes!

Sincerely,

--Alexander Klimchouk and Yuri Dublyansky,
