About this book

This new edition provides an update on the considerable amount of evidence on tree-crop interactions which has accumulated during the last two decades, especially on the more complex multi-strata agroforestry systems, which are typical of the humid tropics. In addition three new chapters have been added to describe the new advances in the relationship between climate change adaptation, rural development and how trees and agroforestry will contribute to a likely reduction in vulnerability to climate change in developing countries.

2: Mixed Cropping of Annual and Woody Perennial Species: An Analytical Approach to Productivity and Management
3: Modelling Radiation Interception and Water Balance in Agroforestry Systems
4: Principles of Resource Capture and Use of Light and Water
5: Agroforestry and (Micro) Climate Change
6: The Water Balance of Mixed Tree–Crop Systems
7: Competition and Phenology in Agroforestry
8: Root Distribution of Trees and Crops: Competition and/or Complementarity

10: Adaptation for Climate-sensitive Crops Using Agroforestry: Case Studies for Coffee and Rice
