Peter Downs est maître de conférences à l’université de Plymouth où il enseigne la
géomorphologie fluviale. Il s’intéresse plus particulièrement aux impacts des activités humaines sur la dynamique des milieux fluviaux et au rôle de la géomorphologie dans la gestion et la restauration durable des rivières. Il a notamment publié From past patterns to future potential: using historical
ecology to inform river restoration on an intermittent California river
(Springer
Netherlands, 2016), River Channel Management: towards sustainable catchment
hydrosystems
(Hodder Arnold, 2004).
