Abstract

The arid karsts are exploited and degraded to the utter limit, at which point the affected areas are either abandoned or rested for a long time. It would be sensible to make pastoral activities secondary to conservation priorities in the arid karstlands. Management of increased numbers of visitors to the caves and karst requires that resource inventories and management plans for each area be drawn up and used. Groundwater resources need to be evaluated, used conservatively and protected from pollution
