About this book

Tropical rainforests disappear at an alarming rate causing unprecedented losses in biodiversity and ecosystem services. Despite an increased recognition of the value of these goods at national and international levels, rainforests continue to be seriously threatened by human-induced global change such as agricultural intensification and climate change. Understanding these processes needs an integrated scientific approach linking ecological, economic and social approaches at different scales, from the household and village level to landscapes and regions. This book will address the following three fields: Agroforestry management in an ecological and socio-economic context, climate change effects on tropical rainforests and agroforests and integrated concepts of land use in tropical landscapes.
