About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and German

The geodiversity of Vorarlberg and Liechtenstein is large. Small and large landforms tell the story of how these mountain landscapes have emerged. They are witnesses to of a dramatic change in climate since the last ice age. The authors have mainly studied small landforms, where people, animals and plants life, and explain, with fascinating precision, how they were formed. Strong arguments for their protection are also put forward in the book: the archive to the formation of mountain landscapes should be conserved if possible, even at a time of rapid changes in land use.

Summary in German:
Die Geodiversität von Vorarlberg und Liechtenstein ist groß. Kleine und große Landformen erzählen die Geschichte, wie diese Berglandschaften entstanden sind. Sie sind Zeugen eines dramatischen Klimawandels seit der letzten Eiszeit. Die Autoren haben vor allem kleine Landformen, wo Menschen, Tiere und Pflanzen leben, untersucht, und sie erklären mit faszinierender Genauigkeit, wie diese entstanden sind. Im Buch werden auch starke Argumente für deren Schutz vorgebracht: Das Archiv zur Entstehung der Berglandschaften gilt es möglichst zu erhalten, auch in einer Zeit von schnellen Landnutzungsänderungen.
