The tropics provide the key to understanding much biological and Earth science.

This is particularly true for the study of landforms, which in higher latitudes suffer great seasonal contrasts in process intensity and type, and which often in the past underwent the dramatic changes of glaciation and periglaciation.

Yet studies in the tropics have shown that the legacy of past climate changes is much more dramatic than was formerly believed.

This book, first published in 1985, brings together the variety of evidence about such environmental changes, over a variety of timescales, and sets it against the current knowledge of the nature of geomorphic processes in the tropics.
