This book is an up-to-date review of research and practice on the use of vegetation for slope stabilization and control of surface erosion caused by water and wind. From a basic understanding of the principles and practices of vegetation growth and establishment, it describes how vegetation can be treated as an engineering material and used to solve erosion and slope stability problems.


"With many useful charts, tables and diagrams, this book is geared towards civil and agricultural engineers, geomorphologists and those involved in the landscape industry." - The Geographical Journal
