Dr. Butler describes how animals of all kinds - from small insects to large mammals such as elephants - can act as agents of erosion, transportation, and deposition of sediment. He discusses specific processes associated with the diversity of animal influences in geomorphology: burrowing and denning, nesting, lithophagy and geophagy, wallowing and trampling, food caching, excavating for food, and dam building by beavers.

Geomorphic effects of terrestrial invertebrates; 3. Aquatic invertebrates; Part III. The Geomorphic Accomplishments of Ectothermic Vertebrates: 4. The geomorphic role of fish; 5.

Geomorphic effects associated with breeding sites; 15. Surface scraping and feeding effects; 16. Burrowing and nest-cavity excavations; Part V. The Geomorphic Effects of Digging for and Catching food: 17. Digging for food; Part VI. Trampling, Wallowing and Geophagy by Mammals: 18. Trampling; 19. Wallowing; 20. Geophagy; 21. Trampling erosion associated with a natural salt lick; Part VII. The Geomorphic effects of Mammalian Burrowing: 22. Introduction; 23. Burrowing and denning; 24. The question of Mima mounds; Part VIII. The Geomorphic Influence of Beavers: 25. Beaver species and morphology; 26. Historical and modern distribution of the beaver; 27.
