Definition of Biostabilization:
Biological processes increasing sediment stability or reducing potential for erosion by tidal currents and wave action (e.g. enhanced cohesion, binding by filaments / roots, surface protection / armouring, flow and wave attenuation by biota).
This is the common definition for Biostabilization, other definitions can be discussed in the article
