  8. An evaluation of the environmental aspects of fruit trees in agroforestry reveals that there can be significant advantages of soil improvment, microclimatic amelioration and environmental protection in fruit tree-based agroforestry systems.
  9. This book consolidates the descriptive results of a pantropical project called Agroforestry Systems Inventory (AFSI), undertaken by the International Council for Research in Agroforestry (ICRAF) from 1982 to 1987. Since agroforestry was a relatively new term when the project was initiated, the...
