Myanmar is still one of the "blank spots" on the speleological world map. The difficult political situation in the country and the restricted access to areas along its borders to Thailand, Laos and India have made only a few speleological expeditions possible so far. However, over the years several investigative projects were carried out with their results scattered in several publications. Especially in most recent times several expeditions were held. This volume aims to give a complete overview about the stand of speleological exploration of Myanmar. The results of all previous cave projects are presented to provide a solid basis for planning future explorations. This compilation also strives to align erroneous locations, name transcription problems as well as double denominations assigned to the same caves -- all of which occurred in the literature. Furthermore a biospeleological overview is presented, including the bats of Myanmar.
