Internal Disturbances

Scope Severity Immediacy
Low Low High
Summary Rank: G

Recreational caving may lead to abandonement of the cave in certain situations as a result of disturbance and could therefore impact localized populations.  In addition, spread of White-nose fungus from infected to uninfected caves by humans has become a major concern (Frick et al 2010) and has been shown to infect several Myotis species (Castle and Cryan 2010).
