The “Best of Karst” is an annually event organized by the Karst Research Group at the University of South Florida, during which a highly esteemed karst scientist from the US or overseas is presenting a series of lectures, followed by 2 days of field trips highlighting the karst and caves of Central and North Florida. Due to the pandemic, the event went virtual in 2021 and in celebration of the International Year of Caves and Karst we decided to invite five distinguished scientists.
