Exploration of invertebrate and bacterial diversity in six subarctic caves in Elgfjellet, Northern Norway. A Geographical map indicates the location of study site and depicts all the caves found in the study area, sampled caves are indicated with red dots. The colours on the geological map indicate different types of rocks that form the area (green: mica schist, blue: pure calcite marble, yellow: Mg- and mica rich marble). Images show examples of cave entrance (surface) (B), twilight zone (C), and inside the cave (D). E Schematic illustration of cave sampling zones investigated in the study
