Based on a review of geomorphological, biological and ecological literature, the AA. have identified and described the co-constructing processes between riparian poplars and their fluvial environment. They have explored the possibility that the modification of the hydrogeomorphological environment exerted, in particular, by the European black poplar (Populus nigra L.), increases its fitness and thus results in positive niche construction. The AA. focus on the fundamental phases of dispersal, recruitment and establishment until sexual maturity of P. nigra by describing the hierarchy of interactions and the pattern of feedbacks between biotic and abiotic components. They explicitly relate the biological life cycle of P. nigra to the fluvial biogeomorphic succession model by referring to the "biogeomorphological life cycle" of P. nigra. Finally, they propose new research perspectives based on this theoretical framework
