Descent set: Life Under Earth

Descent sets are ideal for research and to add to your collection. This set comprises four editions, each containing one part of Hazel Barton's influential series of articles on cave microbiology. This is the cutting edge science of caves, covering how microbes have played a part not only in the genesis of caves, but also how speleothems have been influenced by biology. The set comprises issues (255), (256), (257) and (259), all published in 2017.

These four separate issues would normally cost £6.95 x 4 = £27.80. However, this Descent set will cost you only £19.50, and that's with UK postage included (select the drop-down box to find the cost of posting internationally). That's one issue entirely free when purchased as part of the set.

To find what else appeared in those issues, use the links from the issue numbers above. Descent sets are also available in complete years and if there are other topics than those already on offer that you would like to see included in our Descent sets, please let us know.
