Counter Biotechnical slope stabilization and soil bioengineering are techniques that use plants to stabilize slopes and prevent soil erosion. They are preferable to traditional structures because they are cost-effective, attractive, and much better for the environment. This book examines these popular methods for dealing with erosion control and slope stabilization problems.
