Research on the Sea-Buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) Eco-Restoration Value in Avoiding Erosion and Supporting Soil Fixation

Carmen Georgeta Dumitrescu (Manole)


This paper approaches an issue of real importance, namely the sea-buckthorn influence on the areas attacked by erosion. We consider that this effect is mainly a result of its extremely developed root system, as well as of the nodosities formation on the roots. The study was conducted over a period of 3 years (2011-2013) in two landslides areas from Prahova and Dambovita counties, from where were collected 5 plants (from each area) in 3 repetitions. Calculating the averages regarding the plant roots depth, but also the number of root suckers and nodosities, can be easily deduced the role of these plants in soil fixation, hence their eco-restoration value.
