Trees, shrubs and grasses and hydrogeomorphic processes interact and depend on each other in complex ways on the hillslopes, channels and cone-shaped fans of torrential watersheds. This contribution aims at providing a review of foundational and more recent work on the dependencies and interactions between hydrogeomorphic processes and vegetation. In particular, the AA. address the role of vegetation in the initiation of hydrogeomorphic processes and its impact on stream morphology as well as immediate and long-term effects of hydrogeomorphic disturbance on vegetation
