Abstract:

Roots of plants stable soils on slope and provide resistance against the forces that improve slope instability. In NW of Iran (East Azerbaijan Province), rangelands was Utilized with animal grazing and changed to agricultural land use; this vegetation is unsuitable vegetation on slope to stable them. We studied Astragalus mollis to determine its root biomass characteristics. Data were collected with accidental sampling method (1*1 m) with 10 cm-diameter core in this aria. In total of 5 plots were collected and 25 samples were studied in this research. Minimum, maximum and mean root biomasses of this plant were 7.5, 30.5 and 9.6 g, respectively.
