In the spring of 2017 Bill Gee led three trips into Carroll Cave. Joshua Mouser was working on a masters project at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, doing eDNA data collection and analysis. He has completed his thesis paper and earned his Master of Science degree.

The complete paper is attached below as a PDF file. It is 130 pages of pretty dense reading!

The initial contact came through Dr. David Ashley who was our long-time biology project advisor. Joshua also had help from Dr. Matt Niemiller who did some of his PhD work in Carroll Cave.
