Abstract

Plants interact with and modify the processes of riverbank erosion by altering bank hydrology, flow hydraulics and bank geotechnical properties. The physically based slope stability model GWEDGEM was used to assess how changes in bank geotechnical properties due to the roots of native Australian riparian trees affected the stability of bank sections surveyed along the Latrobe River. The addition of roots to riverbanks improves stability even under worst-case hydrological conditions and is apparent over a range of bank geometries, varying with tree position
