Abstract

The manner in which epigene landscapes evolve is examined and discussed. Slope flattening as a general process of landscape evolution is rejected, and with it Davis' concept of the peneplain. Landscape evolution by scarp retreat and pedimentation is accepted, and several of its consequences are examined.

The opinions derived are expressed at the end of the paper as a series of canons of landscape development
