Stokes, Ioannis Spanos, Joanne E. Norris, Erik Cammeraat. In an era where climate change, natural catastrophes and land degradation are major issues, the conservation of soil and vegetation in mountainous or sloping regions has become an international priority.

Proceedings of the First International Conference on Eco-Engineering 13–17 . Methodology applied to eco- and ground bio-engineering.

Proceedings of the First International Conference on Eco-Engineering 13–17 September 2004. Studies on slope instability, erosion, soil hydrology, mountain ecology, land use and restoration and how to mitigate these problems using vegetation are presented by both scientists and practitioners. Papers encompass many aspects of this multidisciplinary subject, including the mechanisms and modelling of root reinforcement and the development of decision support systems, areas where significant advances have been made in recent years.

Monitoring ground bio-engineering stabilization of landslides in Lazio Region, Italy. The use of geostatistical techniques applied to soil conservation of low-density woodlands.

Stokes . Spanos . Norris . Cammeraat . However, by applying bioengineering (the use of vegetation) they were much more stable. The slope stability problem of the six (06) locations in the Cox’s Bazar district, Bangladesh were analyzed through laboratory measurement of the engineering properties of the soil samples, tensile strength of roots and numerical modeling using both limit equilibrium and finite element method. The modeling results show that the slopes are stable (FS value greater than 1) at the dry condition and. the wet condition unless rocks are weathered.
