Slope development remains one of the central points of geomorphological research, which results in a continuing discussion about concepts proposed by classics of geomorphology (Davis, Penck, King, etc.) on the one hand, as well as in new methodical approaches applied to the study of slopes in concrete environments on the other. The research presented applies the biogeomorphological methods and concept of non-linearity in the assessment of short-term dynamics of the middle segment of rock-mantled slopes in the protective forests. In contrast to general concepts, it is shown that even in the mid-slope, where the permanent prevalence of denudation is usually assumed, the bioprotective and bioerosive effects of trees (trunks) may cause significant variations in the balance between accumulation and denudation.
