Life without Light: Microbiology in Caves
Caves represent some of the most isolated and extreme environments accessible to humans. The absence of light below the surface means cave ecosystems have to rely on alternative sources of energy to survive. Here I will present my research on the microbiology of caves and the unique Movile cave ecosystem.
