    You have other zones, such as the mud zone and guano zone.

    The underwater guano zone is also pretty disturbing....

    Thanks, Jason. This was helpful. I plan to use the terminology to describe the biology that could be found in each zone (including the overlap).

    Sandra Poucher wrote this book (Speleological and Karst Glossary of Florida and the Caribbean) a few years ago. I found it great for learning specific terminology.

    Call then speleological biologists just to be different. Scientific community be damned!!!!

    (Please don't. Seriously, I'm just trolling. I'm just interested in the links everyone is posting)

    Thanks!

    I think I have the rest of the terminology down from here. The specifics to lighting was my only concern, which turns out was me over thinking it to begin with! (Typical biologist)


    The lab I?m working in is contributing to a larger book on cave biology. I can post details about the book once I have them if anytime is interested. It?s an international collaborative effort and doesn?t focus solely on Floridian (or Mexican) caves.
