A Cave Population Statistical Survey
John A. French


In order to determine the total cave population of the Farley (AL) quadrangle, randomly selected quarter-sections were searched thoroughly by walking parallel paths 100 ft apart. From the finding in these areas, it was calculated taht the quadrangle contains about five times as many caves as were known to exist previously. Existing "cave surveys" are thought to include relatively small franctions of the total cave populations in their areas.
