Media reviews


"The body of agroforestry literature has changed our understanding so substantially since publication of the previous edition that this current volume represents a completely new synthesis, rather than minor updating. The latter is about a third larger than the previous edition, and about four-fifths of the 700 literature citations have been published since 1989. Discussion has been expanded substantially in topics such as the role of roots, modeling, nutrient cycling and nutrient-use efficiency, and hedgerow intercropping . . . [I]mprovements ... include a significant increase in the number and quality of photographs, concise chapter summaries, and an improved index . . . The previous edition of this book has been a highly-cited and valued reference. Agroforestry for Soil Management should occupy no less a position on the shelves of teachers, students and anyone who is involved or interested in agroforestry--especially tropical agroforestry."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
