Revegetation of landslides is an important technique to reduce soil erosion, to enhance the recolonisation of native vegetation and to mitigate the visual impact of the area. To provide technical information on this topic, a two years trial was carried out in an Apennine area of central Italy where two different seed rates (100 and 200 kg ha-1) and four mixtures, differing for composition and number of species, were compared in a factorial experiment, taking into account also areas left to natural evolution. Data collection concerned ground cover and botanical composition. Seed rate had no effect on soil cover and on botanical composition. Three different mixtures permitted the attainment of values of ground cover adequate for erosion control, but they differed in a remarkable way concerning the vegetal composition.

Abstract

Revegetation of landslides is an important technique to reduce soil erosion, to enhance the recolonisation of native vegetation and to mitigate the visual impact of the area. To provide technical information on this topic, a two years trial was carried out in an Apennine area of central Italy where two different seed rates (100 and 200 kg ha-1) and four mixtures, differing for composition and number of species, were compared in a factorial experiment, taking into account also areas left to natural evolution. Data collection concerned ground cover and botanical composition. Seed rate had no effect on soil cover and on botanical composition. Three different mixtures permitted the attainment of values of ground cover adequate for erosion control, but they differed in a remarkable way concerning the vegetal composition.
