Abstract

Geomorphology is the study of
landforms.
There are two facets to the proper
management of forests from the
perspective of geomorphology. The
first of these is the importance of
retaining representative and
outstanding examples of landform
species (e.g. a cave) and landform
communities (e.g. the erosional and
depositional features produced by
glaciers that previously existed in an
area). The second consideration is
the need to minimise the extent to
which the productivity of forests is
diminished by hazards such as soil
erosion and landslips.
