Biotechnical slope protection and erosion control

Biotechnical slope protection and erosion control

Biotechnical slope protection and erosion control: 271

Plants and structures can be used together in attractive, environmentally compatible and cost-effective ways to stabilize and support earth slopes and to control soil erosion. This book sets out to explain how this should be done, by combining the principles of engineering and horticulture to solve problems of surface and mass erosion. Data are provided on the effective use of natural indigenous materials.
