Although the coverage of caving and speleological references is good that of the karst and limestones is less complete.  The link to Thailand, let alone caves, is a bit tenuous for many of the references, particularly some of the biological papers e.g. locality data for monkeys or where Thai cave animals have been reclassified. Few Thai language publications have been checked.
 
For the Tham Luang cave rescue in 2018 the majority of press reports have been excluded.
 
The search for references is on going and the compiler would be very interested to receive details of any references he has missed.
