The integration of physical geography

A. S. Goudie

Abstract. Physical Geography has in recent years developed certain tendencies which have led to a greater coherence and to a greater degree of integration with the rest of Geography. Of particular importance are studies of the human impact, of environmental change and its impacts, of the application of Physical Geography to societal needs, of Geoecology and Landscape Ecology, and of global change.
