Within river corridors, the distribution of plant species and communities
is heavily influenced by hydrological and geomorphological processes.
Furthermore, the vegetation can have a direct influence on the detailed
character and rate of hydrogeomorphological processes. This paper
reviews such interactions at a variety of spatial scales ranging
from vegetation gradients across entire floodplains from hillslope
to river channel, to the local influences of bank vegetation and
in-channel accumulations of woody debris.
