"OBSERVATIONS IN SPELEOLOGY"
 Occasional publication series from the "Proteus Project in Bosnia & Hercegovina".

As with the "Proteus Project's" Monographs, the publication of the new "Observations in Speleology" Series is a contribution to the realization of one of the parallel objectives of the "Proteus Project"; namely, to 
generally inform and educate all sectors of civic society in Bosnia & Hercegovina and within the "international community" about the strange, rare and endangered lifeforms occupying the karst underground, 
together with details relating to their endangered hypogean habitats. 
Unlike our Monograph series, this new publication does not have a self-restricting remit and will relate more to our work in all river basins of Bosnia & Hercegovina where the critically endangered Proteus anguinus
can be found. Because of its smaller size when compared with the Monographs, we plan to produce 3 or 4 Issues annually and these will usually contain Papers or Articles of observations and results arising 
from the multidisciplinary programme of the "Proteus Projects in Bosnia & Hercegovina" and relating to a wide variety of topics centred around Proteus anguinus and its habitat locations.

This publication series also welcomes relevant Papers or Articles from contributors who are not part of the "Proteus Project" International Team.
General and Technical Feedback is also welcomed and can be published in successive Issues as "Letters to the Editor" again, if relevant.

Readership :...Although the subject-content of the first Issue will be of interest to a specialist readership (speleologists, karst hydrologists and hydrogeologists, 
...........................karst ecologists, malacologists, herpetologists, naturalists, etc.), the generic design and content format of this publication offers ease of access
 ..........................and understanding to what is, naturally, very interesting subject-matter. 
...........................This should increase the appeal of the publications to a wider but less specialist audience.
