Description :
Starting with definitions of core biogeomorphic processes, the AA. consider the need for future biogeomorphological studies to evaluate the crucial links between bioprocesses, biological community dynamics and inorganic earth surface processes. Five key applications of biogeomorphological research are identified, the roles of organisms in environmental reconstruction, trace fossil analysis, extraterrestrial geomorphology, environmental engineering and the built environment. The challenges for future research include investigating the relevance of nonlinear dynamical ideas to biogeomorphology and developing better sampling and monitoring techniques for bioprocesses.
