About this book

Selected papers from the Agroforestry Sessions of the IUFRO 20th World Congress held in Tampere, Finland in August 1995. Reprinted from Agroforestry Systems 30: 1-2. These papers focus on the interdisciplinary nature of agroforestry, and on the practical imperative of assisting farmers, forest dwellers and landscape-level planners in achieving sustainable food, fuel and timber production into the 21st century.
