📙 Vegetation and slopes : stabilisation, protection and ecology by D. H. Barker, D. H. Barker — download pdf


Recent concerns over the durability and whole-life costs of systems such as steel and concrete, has focused attention on the self-repairing ability of vegetation, and its low-tech and low whole-life cost and maintenance requirements. The awareness of the beneficial effects of vegetation has been increasing within the civil engineering profession, and qualitative knowledge based on observations and experience has been augmented by field and laboratory testing throughout the world.

This book contains the papers from the recent international conference on vegetation
