    Agroforestry is a land use management system in which trees or shrubs are grown around or among crops or pastureland. This diversification of the farming system initiates an agroecological succession, like that in natural ecosystems, and so starts a chain of events that enhance the functionality and sustainability of the farming system. This book is an important work for tropical agriculture. There are very few resources that are truly “organic” and practical for the everyday farmer in the tropical setting. This book covers material that is extremely useful for the day-to-day operation of a farm or garden.

Evolutionary processes in both untouched and managed forests are described, as is the role of genetics in plantation forestry and conservation.

    Forestry is the science and craft of creating, managing, using, conserving, and repairing forests, woodlands, and associated resources for human and environmental benefits. Forestry is practiced in plantations and natural stands. The science of forestry has elements that belong to the biological, physical, social, political and managerial sciences. Two other particularly good examples of books dealing in a more practical and applicable way with tropical forestry issues are the recent edition of Plantation Forestry in the Tropics (Evans), which contains many practical examples and insights for tropical managers, and the recent World Bank publication Book Reviews.
