Expedition Gunung Lanno

Expedition Gunung Lanno - In November 2001 a group of speleologists from Austria, Germany and Malaysia held an expedition to Gunung Lanno, an isolated, densely forested limestone hill in the Kinta Valley, Peninsular Malaysia. The expedition searched for caves and surveyed them. During 3 weeks, 32 caves were documented and 12 km of passages surveyed. Aerial investigation via aeroplane showed higher entrances of which not all have been reached. 4 temple caves were also surveyed. The biggest discovery was Gua Puncak, which holds western Malaysia’s second largest chamber, 60 m wide and more than 180 m long. Other big caves are Gua Selari, Gua Lanno and Gua Kong Fook Ngam. The cave fauna was studied, and several new species were discovered. This report documents the results of the expedition in 2001, the pre-trips in the years 1998 and 1999, as well as an introduction into the area.

Authors: E. Geyer, P. Jeutter, S. Kogler, L. Price, J. Segl, F. Schmidt, Dr. H. Steiner, A.Wolf, S. Yian, Dr. H. Kusch, A. Örtel.
2005, hardback, A4, 240pp, 253 figures, colour and b&w photos, maps, surveys.

The natural and other histories of Batu Caves (Shaharin Yussof)

Batu Caves - This book, although relatively simple, provides information on the natural history and conservation status of the Batu Caves hill and caves. It is a new book, but is somewhat based on the 1971 book, `A Guide to Batu Caves' by Soepadmo and Ho published by MNS. The main emphasis on this 1997 book is the invertebrate fauna and ecology of the Dark Cave, and a lot of the book concentrates on Dark Cave, which is one of the longest caves in Peninsula Malaysia. The first few sections cover location and history, then conservation and scientific research history. The next is geology, then cave formation. There is also a lengthy guide to the Hindu temple caves.
1997. A5 soft cover, pp.i-ix, 1-55, +46 colour plates.
