Comparison of routine metabolic rates of the stygobite, Gammarus acherondytes (Amphipoda: Gammaridae) and the stygophile, Gammarus troglophilus
TLDR
The number of wells with faecal coliform contamination was weakly but positively correlated with the number of residential building permits, indicating that surface landuse changes probably increase the availability of energy in groundwater systems inhabited by G. acherondytes.
First records of freshwater oligochaetes (Annelida, Clitellata) from caves in Illinois and Missouri, USA
TLDR
Aquatic oligochaetes collected from the fine sediments of streams in several of the longest caves in Illinois and Missouri are examined in conjunction with studies of the fauna and water quality of caves in the karst areas of southwestern Illinois and southeastern Missouri.
Life history observations of the Illinois state endangered Enigmatic Cavesnail, Fontigens antroecetes (Hubricht, 1940) made under simulated cave conditions

TLDR
The Enigmatic Cavesnail, Fontigens antroecetes, is a cave adapted hydrobioid snail listed as state endangered in Illinois and from several caves in the eastern Ozark ecoregion of Missouri, where limited data available from surviving hatchling snails suggests slow growth rates.
Recharge area delineations and hazard and vulnerability mapping in Perry County, Missouri

  • 2013
Eight recharge areas have been delineated in the sinkhole plain of Perry County, MO, USA. The groundwater systems delineated were the Moore Cave system, Keyhole Spring, Ball Mill Spring, the Crevice
Chemical and Bacterial Quality of Aeration‐Type Waste Water Treatment System Discharge
On‐site waste water treatment systems are a potential source of chemical and bacterial contamination to ground water in areas with highly susceptible aquifers such as the sinkhole plain of
OVIPOSITION, EARLY DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH OF THE CAVE SALAMANDER, EURYCEA LUCIFUGA: SURFACE AND SUBTERRANEAN INFLUENCES ON A TROGLOPHILIC SPECIES
TLDR
It is suggested that the cool, predator free habitats of midwestern caves have allowed for a longer reproductive season in E. lucifuga, but that the unpredictable hydrology and limited food supply of these cave environments has expanded the breeding period and slowed embryonic and larval development.
CONSERVATION STRATEGIES SUPPORTED BY NON-LETHAL LIFE HISTORY SAMPLING OF THE U.S. FEDERALLY LISTED ILLINOIS CAVE AMPHIPOD, GAMMARUS ACHERONDYTES
TLDR
The results suggest that G. acherondytes should recovery rapidly from perturbations if left undisturbed and establish a laboratory population for use in future studies or to propagate individuals for reintroduction should require only one-and-a-half to two years.
Potential effects of recurrent low oxygen conditions on the Illinois Cave amphipod
GAMMARUS ACHERONDYTES IN ILLINOIS CAVES The cave streams of Illinois’ sinkhole plain comprise the only habitat of the Illinois Cave amphipod (Gammarus acherondytes) (Fig. 1), a federally endangered
Survival of Gammarus troglophilus (Gammaridae) after leg removal: Evaluation of a procedure to obtain tissue for genetic analysis of rare and endangered amphipods
TLDR
Experiments showed that survival of Gammarus troglophilus, a common amphipod of Midwest caves and springs, was similar and post-amputation survival could allow sampling of tissue for genetic analyses without sacrificing individuals, an important asset when working with species that are endangered or for which population sizes are very small.

Abstract The Castleton area contains an extensive and complex karst drainage system. Recharge is provided by allogenic stream sinks and by infiltration into a soil covered autogenic catchment.
Effects of Organic Pollution on an Appalachian Cave: Changes in Macroinvertebrate Populations and Food Supplies
TLDR
Results of a laboratory growth experiment suggest that isopods can use bacteria from septic effluent as a food, and presence of coarse particulate matter, not organic enrichment by septic system effluent, was the most likely cause of high isopod density in some pools.
