This book aims to assist in choosing ecotechnological solutions for slopes that are prone to a variety of mass movements e.g. shallow failure or erosion. The book reviews the types of problematic slopes that may occur and describes briefly the nature of mass movements and the causes of these movements. There is focus on the use of vegetation to stabilize soil on slopes prone to mass movements. The book also introduces new ecotechnological methods, and case studies are discussed.
New scientific research and practical advice in the field of slope stability and erosion control
A holistic approach to the revegetation of degraded slopes
Interaction between substrate movement and vegetation discussed by geotechnical engineers, hydrologists and plant biologists
State of the art technical and modelling methods presented by engineers, biologists and foresters
