That breathing cave is air movement through a cave is described as breathing when it reverses more frequently than the seasonal reversal of a through-draught in a cave with higher and lower entrances. slow breathing occurs in response to barometric pressure changes, when the volume of cave air is forced to change. it is notoriously strong in large caves of the australian nullarbor plain. more rapid wind reversals or oscillations, as in breathing cave, virginia, are a resonance phenomenon, similar to the effect produced by air passing over the neck of a bottle. in the cave environment the resonant frequency is relatively low and periodic air flow reversals occur, rather than the sound waves observed at the higher frequencies met in the bottle neck example .?

The Batu caves are the only caves in the Malay Peninsula that are well investigated zoologically, and they are the most thoroughly sampled anywhere in Southeast Asia. However, the records have not been collated to provide a comprehensive overview of the fauna present. This issue is addressed here by presenting an authoritative checklist of all reported zoological taxa, together with ecological annotations and a comprehensive bibliography.
