Agroforestry for Sustainable Agriculture: Burleigh Dodds Series in Agricultural Science

en Limba Engleză Hardback – 16 noi 2018
The USDA defines agroforestry as: 'the intentional mixing of trees and shrubs into crop and animal production systems to create environmental, economic and social benefits'. Agroforestry seeks to balance protection of forest resources, the exploitation of the ecosystem services that trees can contribute to agriculture and the role of agroforestry in diversifying the range of agricultural products and markets, especially for smallholders and forest communities.

This volume reviews the latest research on the role and implementation of main types of agroforestry, understanding and assessing the ecosystem services that agroforestry can deliver and techniques for optimising agroforestry practice. The book's main focus is on temperate agroforestry, but also reviews particular issues facing agroforestry in the tropics.

With its distinguished editors and team of contributing authors, the collection will be a standard reference on agroforestry science for forestry and agricultural scientists in universities, government and other research centres promoting agroforestry to improve sustainability in agriculture, the natural environment and rural communities.
