About this book

Biodiversity in Agroecosystems shows how biodiversity can be thought of not only as the rich make-up of a great number of related and competing species within an ecologically defined community, but also as the robust behavior and resilience of those species over time and as the endurance of their eco-community. Biodiversity in Agroecosystems brings to the fore new research on biodiversity in agricultural ecosystems at both micro and macro levels, heretofore available only in journals and proceedings papers.

"[...] is topical, well referenced, and timely [...] The book is a useful reference to serious students of agriculture and natural resources, and a valuable contribution to the book series"
