About this book

This book demonstrates in a series of international case studies (ranging from the humid tropics to the temperate regions), how to combine the more production-oriented focus of the agronomist with the more systems-oriented viewpoint of the ecologist. Different methodologies for quantifying and evaluating agroecosystem sustainability are presented and analyzed.
