Abstract


Roots have a mechanic role in soil stabilization on slopes due to their density and fixing manner. Ornamental shrubs were extracted from the experimental slope and measured. The results revealed that the highest density of roots was developed by Cornus alba extracted from the lower level of the slope (2.000), while the lowest root density was presented by Weigelia florida (0.625) extracted from the upper slope.
