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.
