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. It bridges the gap between the civil engineer, vegetation specialist and landscape designer, and is the first book for a decade to deal with the subject at both research and practical levels. Examples of the successful use of vegetation are presented from many countries in the developed and developing world, as well as instances where vegetation has had no effect or has even aggravated erosion and slope failure rates.
