Journey Into Amazing Caves

www.amazingcaves.com [cached]

Jill Yager, Professor of Ecology, Invertebrate Zoology and Freshwater and Marine Environments, Antioch College, Yellow Springs, Ohio.

"Caves are amazing habitats that deserve our care and protection. Whatever we do on the surface affects what is beneath our feet. Caves, especially water-filled ones, are very susceptible to pollution, the effects of deforestation, and misuse of ground water. This movie will introduce many people to caves for the first time, and I hope the audience will enjoy their beauty and walk out with a sense of respect for their uniqueness and the part they play in our environment."
Dr. Yager earned her PhD in Ecological Sciences from Old Dominion University. She conducts research in submerged caves where she studies water chemistry and the animals that live there. She has been a certified cave diver for over 25 years and has explored submerged caves in the Bahamas, Mexico, the Turks and Caicos, Cuba, Bermuda, and Florida. While cave diving in the Bahamas in 1979, Yager discovered an exciting crustacean totally new to science. This crustacean was not just a new species, but a new class of crustacean which she named the Remipedia. Yager continues her study of submerged cave environments and her search for new species of remipedes. Her research has been featured in several television documentaries, including Smithsonian World, 3-2-1 Contact, the New Explorers, and National Geographic's Sea Stories.

She studied remipedes for her doctoral dissertation under Professor John Holsinger at Old Dominion University. Her research deals with the ecology of submerged caves, studying the physical environment and community of animals that live there. Her research has taken her to the beautiful and highly endangered caves in Quintana Roo, Mexico, and sites throughout the Carribean. Dr. Yager has appeared in several educational television programs. In August she and cave biologist Abel Perez were filmed in Cuba for a new National Geographic television program called "Sea Secrets.
