Tree-crop interactions: agroforestry in a changing climate Chin K. Ong, Colin R. Black, Julia Wilson 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. This book breaks new ground in showing how the principles of crop physiology can be applied to the understanding of tree-crop interactions. It is aimed at students, research workers and practitioners in agroforestry and applied plant physiology.

This book is a major contribution towards this goal, and is aimed at students, research workers and practitioners in agroforestry and applied plant physiology. The authors have applied principles of plant ecology and crop physiology to develop more precise approaches that quantify biological (tree-crop) interactions in agroforestry systems. Tree Crop Ecosystems is a unique new resource which combines the interests of traditional foresters and horticulturalists. Sixteen chapters written by international experts in the field emphasise the current topical issues besetting each of the crops considered.

Book: Tree-crop interactions: a physiological approach. + pp. Abstract: Agroforestry is rapidly being transformed from an empirical, largely anecdotal collection of beliefs and practices into an emerging science in the field of natural resource management. Description This second edition, which includes 12 chapters, provides an important update on tree-crop interactions over the last two decades. 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.   1.
