About this book

Reprinted from Geomorphology, Volume 13 (1-4). Biogeomorphology is a relatively new term referring to relations between the biota and geomorphic form and process. This is among the first books to approach this subject. Most of the articles relate vegetation to fluvial geomorphology, erosion, and sedimentation. Geographically the papers range from arid areas in the American Southwest and Israel to the new world tropics. Most articles, however, are concerned with temperate areas of North America and Western Europe.
