Abstract

"Recent explorations in the Buttercup Creek Karst, west of Cedar Park have yielded several large caves inhabited by a unique assemblage of animals, both vertebrate and invertebrate. This report summarizes the geological and biological information on this area and recommends a strategy to protect the caves and their inhabitants as development proceeds in the Cedar Park area. This study also evaluates the hydrologic contribution to the cave system of each local area to determine the degree of protection necessary." -- Author Open Access See Extended description for more information.
