Abstract

Stone forests are unique karst surface landforms. The Lunan stone forests developed from underground karren. Where this type of surface is highly developed in China, it is defined as a shilin. Diverse examples of stone forests that formed in almost identical conditions show that the shape of the pillars is mainly the consequence of the distribution and density of fissures in the rock, its stratification, and different rock strata composition. The rock forms on the pillars are divided into subcutaneous forms, composed rock forms, and forms shaped by rain water. Because of the exceptional characteristics of this karst phenomenon in China, we propose that the term shilin be used for this type of stone forest in the profesional literature. - (IKR)
