Major engineering projects such as highway construction, mineral production and housing and industrial development have had a considerable, and often very detrimental effect on the environment. In recent times, however, and interest has developed in providing effective low-cost solutions to combat this problem. This book demonstrates the wide range of applications for vegetation as an engineering medium and to evaluate its role in environmental control. Processes and problems in surface hydrology, drainage, slope stabilization, shelterbelts, land rehabilitation, soil erosion, irrigation and waste disposal are examined, focusing on the particular role of vegetation. For professionals involved in land development - particularly landscape architects and civil engineers - this book shoud be a useful reference manual containing a number of design examples. This book is intended for professionals involved in land development - particularly landscape architects and civil engineers.
