Title: Nature’s Engineers: How Animals and Plants Shape Landforms and Landscapes with Professor Gemma Harvey

Time: 15: 30 - 16:30pm

This lecture will encourage you to consider the importance of biodiversity from a geomorphological perspective. Animals and plants modify Earth surface processes in many different ways, and across a range of scales from individual sediment grains to entire river-floodplain systems. This lecture explores the fascinating roles played by organisms capable of ‘engineering’ geomorphological processes and transforming landscapes, and how this can assist landscape recovery from degradation, or in some cases pose a threat.
