About this book

Reprinted from AGROFORESTRY SYSTEMS, 38:1-3. Selected Papers from the Symposium on Tropical Agroforestry organized in connection with the Annual Meeting of ASA, 5 November 1996, Indianapolis, USA.

The volume contains 10 state-of-the-art reviews of developments in specific areas of tropical agroforestry research during the past two decades, prepared by acknowledged world leaders in the respective topics, following their presentations at a one-day symposium held in connection with the annual meetings of the tri-societies of American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America in November 1996. Each paper synthesizes the results of research, summarizes the current state of knowledge, identifies knowledge gaps, and outlines the directions that research should take in the years ahead. Taken together, these papers provide insight into the accomplishments in agroforestry research so far and our current level of understanding. As such, the volume will be of interest to professionals and students alike, not only in agroforestry, but in all land-use disciplines.
