Abstract

Present biogeomorphic knowledge supports the hypothesis that abiotic-biotic feedbacks create characteristic modulated patterns of earth surface landforms, adjusting according to biological evolution in the long term and to ecological succession in the short term. In this context, natural selection of organisms and ecological successions are considered to have the potential, in some cases, for extension to the physical world, including earth surface landforms. The extended evolutionary perspective, that is intended to feed back to ecology and evolutionary biology, indicates the potential for change in the deep understanding of geomorphology to reflect evolutionary and ecological succession theories
