Agroforestry is a land use system that allows for the concurrent production of trees and agricultural crops from the same piece of land. It has a rich history of development and has been practised in some parts of the world for more than 6,000 years. Today’s challenges of climate change, population growth and food security, along with the ongoing global requirement for the energy and water needed for a sustainable agricultural paradigm, can be met through the wide-scale adoption of agroforestry practices, worldwide This new, fully-updated and expanded edition adds additional chapters on India and Chile and, as a result of ongoing advancements in the field, separate chapters for the U.S.A and Canada, and the U.K. and continental Europe. The book will continue to be of great use to researchers, practitioners and policy makers, and to those studying agriculture, ecology, environmental studies and forestry in temperate regions.
