Man and Karst, Sicily, Italy

The international scientific meeting "Man and Karst" will be held in Sicily from 24th to 28th June 2019 and is amongst others organized by the Hyblean Center for Speleo-Hydrogeological Research, Ragusa, Italy. The extreme south-eastern sector of Sicily, which geographically belongs to the Hyblean Mountains, but geologically to the African foreland, represents an outstanding example for the comprehensive understanding of karst. Here we will explore pure karst landscapes, deeply carved by spectacular and evocative canyons and their profound relationship with Man.

For all this, Man and Karst 2019 in Sicily, in the same way as the previous past editions, wants to give a contribution to the knowledge, enhancement and safeguard of the karst landscape with its ecosystem and historical-anthropological resources as a whole, as an instrument and optimal function of scientific research, not as often for its own sake or for the sake of a few users, but rather, at the service and for the benefit of the whole community.
