Ein landschaftsgeschichtlich bedeutsamer Quellkalk im Tiroler Oberinn— Tal

Reinhold Huckriede
An erosional relic of tufa, situated on the dissected terrace slope below Fendels (Tyrol, Upper Inn Valley) and containing subfossil plants and gastropods, offers no indication of a mediaeval natural forest uninfluenced by man. Vegetation was however partly different from that growing today around the place. The morphological situation of the tufa shows a great extent of slope erosion since mediaeval times, attributed to disforestation.
