ABSTRACT. An appropriate conceptual leap can be made from human geography to physical geography by applying space-time continuum modeling to zoogeomorphology—the alteration of the landscape by animals. Drawing on the work of Torsten Hägerstrand, we propose a space-time continuum model of grizzly bears, a geomorphic agent. Through both data-driven and conceptual applications, the model traces where and when grizzly bears are likely to wield a geomorphic impact. The model further demonstrates that geographers have much to gain by merging concepts from human and physical geography.
