|Title:||Deliberate omission or unfortunate oversight: Should stygofaunal surveys be included in routine groundwater monitoring programs?||Contributor(s):||Tomlinson, Moya (author); Boulton, Andrew John (author); Hancock, Peter J (author); Cook, P G (author)||Publication Date:||2007||DOI:||10.1007/s10040-007-0211-z||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1501||Abstract:||This essay briefly reviews perceived values of stygofauna and benefits of their inclusion in hydrogeological surveys of groundwater, and summarises the legislative and policy framework for stygofaunal surveys. Although focused on Australia, the issues discussed are of broad, international concern. A staged approach to surveys is advocated where investigations progressively increase in complexity. This aims to overcome the current paradox of omitting stygofauna from groundwater monitoring because there is insufficient information for the interpretation of survey results — yet, if stygofauna are not sampled, then the information will never be collected to address the knowledge gaps.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Hydrogeology Journal, 15(7), p. 1317-1320||Publisher:||Springer||Place of Publication:||Berlin, Germany||ISSN:||1435-0157
