Lichenometry uses lichen thallus increment as a time measure. Since the 1950s, it has been considered a useful method for dating rocky landforms developed over the past 500 years, as other methods are not suitable for such timescales. Rock walls and colluvial blocks are the basic elements in the morphology of rock landslides, which are colonized by the Rhizocarpon lichens. This paper shows the assumptions of lichenometry as well as its applications in geomorphological research in Poland and worldwide. The results of lichenometric datings of landslide-bouldery walls and colluvial blocks are presented. This study helps identify the landslide episodes instigated in historical time. The obtained results show that several generations of landslide-rockfall forms old as well as apparently new and active ones occur on the investigated slopes.
