About this book

Below Ground Interactions in Tropical Agroecosystems provides a synthesis of plant-soil-plant interactions in agroforestry, intercropping and grass-legume interactions. It focuses on the process level, which is relevant to many types of multi-species agroecosystem. It also links basic research to practical applications in a wide range of systems with or without trees, and considers effects of global change on below-ground interactions. The contents include soil biodiversity and food webs, phosphorus dynamics and mobilization by plants, and crop and tree root-system dynamics. The book will be of significant interest to researchers in plant, crop and soil sciences as well as agroforestry.

Media reviews

"It is good to see that mainstream scientific research is now taking complex agroecosystems seriously and this book takes the science forward in a significant step."
– Martin Crawford, Agroforestry News, July 2004

"This well-illustrated book is a welcome step towards in-depth understanding of below-ground interactions in tropical agroforestry, intercropping, and grass-legumes based agroecosystems. The book will be of much interest to researchers and advanced students viewing various crop production systems in ecosystem perspective."
– Nandita Ghoshal, Tropical Ecology, 45(2), 2004

"Overall the breadth of subjects covered makes this a useful synthesis of current concepts and practices."
– T.J. Daniell, B.S. Griffiths and B.M. McKenzie, Experimental Agriculture, 41, 2005
