Edited By: Reiner Wassman and Paul LG Vlek
Compilation of articles on natural resource management, as well as the socio-economic aspects of greenhouse gas mitigation. The scope of mitigation options in tropical agriculture is discussed for three different activities: agroforestry; rice-based production systems; and pasture/animal husbandry.
