Abstract

Karst forms in the Bolivian Highland. There are clints, dolines, caverns and karst springs, but no poljes and conical karst. They can be formed in spite of extreme climatic conditions. In respect to the petrography we note a relatively wide range: limestone, calcareous sandstone, dolomite and especially gypsum are intensely affected by corrosion. All the dolines and clints found in the Andes are mainly postglacial, but were preformed in the Pleistocene.
