Pp. 79– in Soils Research in Agroforestry, H. O. Mongi and P. A. Huxley, eds. Nairobi, Kenya: International Center for Research in Agroforestry. Agroforestry is recognized as a sustainable land-use management in the tropics, as it provides environmental-friendly ecosystems; it also provides people with their every day need for food and cash. Since the recognition of agroforestry as a science, curricula have been developed for agroforestry programs for undergraduate and graduate trainings in Universities. Therefore, there is an urgent.
able development among tropical and nontropical countries alike, with special concern for the world's humid tropics. This report focuses on the humid tropics, a biogeographical area within the tropical zone that contains most of its population and biologically rich natural resources.

In Living with the Trees of Life: Towards the Transformation of Tropical Agriculture, Professor Leakey argues that abject rural poverty, food insecurity, land degradation and climate change can all be “relatively easily addressed” through the widespread application of agroforestry, especially in the tropics and sub-tropics. And ‘The.

Alain R. Atangana received a Ph. degree in forest genetics from Université Laval, Canada. He researched participatory domestication of high-value multipurpose trees of the humid tropics of Africa using agroforestry techniques for more than ten years.
Agroforestry in Sustainable Agricultural Systems examines the environmental and social conditions that affect the roles and performance of trees in field- and forest-based agricultural production systems. Various types of ecological settings for agroforestry are analyzed within temperate and tropical regions.
“The 21 chapters of the page book are organized into five major thematic sections (Parts I-V) related to tropical agroforestry. present the current status of the subject matter in a concise, balanced, and non-controversial form and simple language that is understandable to both 4/5(1).

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 to Since agroforestry was a relatively new term when the project was initiated.
Agroforestry is now being seen as an alternative paradigm for rural development worldwide, centered on species-rich, low-input agricultural techniques including a diverse array of new indigenous tree crops, rather than on high-input monocultures with only a small set of staple food crops (Leakey, a,b Leakey, a Leakey, b).This alternative paradigm addresses many of the global.

Each of the agroforestry systems are unique to the region incorporating their native trees into the TAFS.

Agroforestry is recognized as a sustainable land-use management in the tropics, as it provides environmental-friendly ecosystems; it also provides people with their every day need for food and cash.
Since the recognition of agroforestry as a science, curricula have been developed for agroforestry programs for undergraduate and graduate. The species has particular relevance in the humid tropics and on acidic soils where other agroforestry trees perform poorly.
It is primarily used outside its native range, in areas where high population density places pressure on limited land resources, and where agroforestry systems are being developed to maintain and sustain agricultural. It is adapted to the hot, humid tropics and does well in constantly humid soils.
While the original species was quite variable, modern varieties are stout palms, robust, with persistent leaf bases. They begin to produce their fruits at a very early stage, and produce large numbers of compact inflorescences held very close to the trunk.

The humid tropics with billion people, most of which are poor farmers on about 3 billion hectares of land, are critical to local, regional and global food supplies, and.
On infertile soils, the susceptibility of crops to pests and diseases is strongly affected by the availability of plant nutrients, which may be influenced by agroforestry techniques in various ways. Soil management measures such as mulching and planting cover crops may affect crop health by improving soil fertility and by directly acting on Cited by: The majority of the soils in the humid tropics are acidic and infertile.
Agroforestry systems are the most appropriate forms of sustainable, productive management of soils in the humid tropics because perennial woody vegetation can recycle nutrients, maintain soil organic matter, and protect the soil from surface erosion and by: A global partnership of over 50 institutions around the world with a shared interest in conserving forests and reducing poverty in the humid tropics.
