ABSTRACT
Small karst forms are commonly observed within isolated limestone rocky-hills in the eastern part of Podhale Basin. They are usually filled by deposits developed as loams with limestone scree or initial rendsina-type soil. Mollusc shells occur frequently in both types of sediments. Molluscan assemblages comprise mainly land snails including woodland, open-country and mesophile species. Mollusc-bearing slope and cave deposits were collected from twenty six outcrops in six localities. The succession of molluscan assemblages provides a basis for palaeogeographical, palaeoecological and startigraphical studies, as well as for reconstruction of environmental changes during the Late Glacial and Holocene.
