A landform comprises a geomorphological unit. The highest order landforms are oceans and continents. Landforms can be created by a number of factors, ranging from plate tectonics to erosion and deposition. They may also be influenced by biological factors, for example the role of plants in the development of dune systems and salt marshes and corals and algae in the formation of coral reefs.
