About this book

Agroforestry - the practice of integrating trees and other large woody perennials on farms and throughout the agricultural landscape - is increasingly recognised as a useful and promising strategy that diversifies production for greater social, economic, and environmental benefits. This book brings together 46 scientists and practitioners from 13 countries with decades of field experience in tropical regions to explore how agroforestry practices can help promote biodiversity conservation in human dominated landscapes, to synthesize the current state of knowledge in the field, and to identify areas where further research is needed. The book is the first comprehensive synthesis of the role of agroforestry systems in conserving biodiversity in tropical landscapes, and contains in depth review chapters of most agroforestry systems, with examples from many different countries.
