North American Agroforestry: An Integrated Science and Practice
Because of the environmental consequences of past agricultural and forestry practices that focused exclusively on the economic bottom line, the public now demands greater accountability and the application of more ecologically and socially friendly management approaches. Introductory chapters focus on the ecological foundations and the current status of agroforestry. Additional chapters cover technical aspects of major agroforestry practices: windbreaks, silvopastures, alley cropping, riparian forest buffers, and forest farming. The book concludes with several chapters that evaluate these systems, integrate related socioeconomic factors, and explore the future.
