Specialties of Frank Graf:
slope (soil) stabilisation using appropriate plants considering micro-organisms, particularly mycorrhizal fungi.

Quantification of biological effects (plants, mycorrhizal fungi) on the stability of soil being at risk of water or wind erosion

Resesarch aims at application of adapted (optimised) soil bioengineering measures to protect or re-colonise (re-stabilise) slopes prone to or affected by processes of erosion and superficial sliding. Additionally, the same approach is tested for possible use in wind erosion control.
