Bioengineering Techniques for Soil Erosion Protection and Slope Stabilization
Mountain environments play a crucial role in maintaining biodiversity despite becoming more vulnerable to colluvial processes primarily induced by extreme meteorological events. Soil bioengineering stabilizes mountain slopes and limits impacts on ecosystems and is increasingly used worldwide, yet its effectiveness requires better assessment through post-intervention environmental monitoring.
However such studies are only rarely performed even though they are essential to improve future intervention. This study reports soil and vegetation monitoring data of an area in the Italian Alps in which soil bioengineering work was carried out to restore an area hit by landslides. The monitoring involved an analysis of the floristic-vegetational and ecological features of the plant communities of the area of the soil bioengineering intervention and in adjacent areas , as well as an analysis of the chemical—physical characteristics of the soils texture, pH, organic matter, nitrogen content, roots depth where these communities were established.
The results of the monitoring, analyzed in the overall framework of the state of the art of the sector, have highlighted some lines of research and action that should be undertaken by technicians, researchers, and politicians to innovate and to make work aimed at the stabilization of landslides more effective.

Below is the uncorrected machine-read text of this chapter, intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text of each book. Because low-volume roads often omit surface slope protection, they may be vulnerable to slope failure; erosion; and maintenance, safety, and ecological issues. This report presents information on cost-effective and sustainable road slope stabilization techniques, with a focus on shallow or near-surface slope stabiliza- tion and related erosion control methods used on low-volume roads. To fully address this topic, planning and site investigation are discussed along with erosion control techniques, soil bioengineering and biotechnical techniques, and mechanical stabilization and earth- work techniques. The information presented in this report was obtained through an extensive literature review, and from survey and interview responses.
In this work we propose the use of soil quality indicators with the aim of assessing the environmental impact of soil bioengineering works. This study was carried out in central Italy where soil bioengineering slope stabilization works were established using chestnut wood. In particular the goal of this study was to determine the occurrence of a wood-effect, that is changes of soil properties due to the presence of decomposing logs in two sites characterized by different time span since works setting up. The presence of the logs did not affect soil physico-chemical properties. Conversely, soil biochemical properties such as soil microbial biomass, basal and cumulative respiration activities as well as microbial indexes, were influenced by the presence of the logs confirming the role of these bioindicators as early predictors of changes occurring in soil. Although a general positive trend was observed for the biochemical properties at both sites with respect to the control soils, significant differences were recorded mainly at the site where works were established six years before soil sampling.

Sotir President, Robbin B. This book reviews the horticultural and engineering basis for biotechnical and soil engineering treatments. It explains the role of woody plants in stabilizing slopes against both surficial erosion and mass movement and provides details on a broad range of soil bioengineering methods, including live staking, live fascines, brushlaying, live crib walls, branch packing and live slope gratings.
