Edited By: CK Ong, M Van Noordwijk and G Cadisch
This book provides a synthesis of plant-soil interactions in agroforestry, intercropping and grass-legume interactions. It focuses on the process level, which is relevant to many types of multi-species agro-ecosystems. It also links basic research to practical applications in a wide range of systems with or without trees, and considers effects of global change on below-ground interactions.
Locally derived knowledge of soil fertility and its emerging role in integrated natural resource management; Models of below-ground interactions: their validity, applicability and beneficiaries; Opportunities for capture of deep soil nutrients; Managing soil acidity and aluminium toxicity in tree-based agroecosystems; Uptake, partitioning and redistribution of water by roots in mixed-species agroecosystems; Below-ground inputs: relationships with soil quality, soil C storage and soil structure; Nematodes and other soilborne pathogens in agroforestry; Managing below-ground interactions in agroecosystems; Managing movements of water, solutes and soil: from plot to landscape scale
