  1. Agroecology, Ecosystems, and Sustainability

    Edited by Noureddine Benkeblia

    Series: Advances in Agroecology

    We hear a lot about how agriculture affects climate change and other environmental issues, but we hear little about how these issues affect agriculture. When we look at both sides of the issues, we can develop better solutions for sustainable agriculture without adversely affecting the environment....

  2. Land Use Intensification

    Effects on Agriculture, Biodiversity, and Ecological Processes

    Edited by David Lindenmayer, Saul Cunningham, Andrew Young

    Series: Advances in Agroecology

    By 2050, the global population of humans is predicted to increase by 35%. Approximately 70% more food may be required, and this will take place against a backdrop of 15-40% land degradation. This book examines land use intensification and biodiversity conservation and its impacts. It also discusses...

  3. Microbial Ecology in Sustainable Agroecosystems

    Edited by Tanya E. Cheeke, David C. Coleman, Diana H. Wall

    Series: Advances in Agroecology

    While soil ecologists continue to be on the forefront of research on biodiversity and ecosystem function, there are few interdisciplinary studies that incorporate ecological knowledge into sustainable land management practices. Conventional, high fossil-fuel input-based agricultural systems can...

  4. Global Economic and Environmental Aspects of Biofuels

    Edited by David Pimentel

    Series: Advances in Agroecology

    Biofuels and food are dependent on the same resources for production: land, water, and energy. The conjuncture of food, energy, and climate crises demands a new direction in how to harness agriculture to the joint tasks of energy-saving, emissions reduction, and food security. Global Economic and...

  7. Soil Ecology in Sustainable Agricultural Systems

    Edited by Lijbert Brussaard, R. Ferrera-Cerrato

    Series: Advances in Agroecology

    By better understanding the complex codependent relationships between soils, soil organisms, and crops, scientists can better predict how an agricultural system will behave when the use of tillage, pesticides, and fertilizers is reduced. Soil Ecology in Sustainable Agricultural Systems demonstrates...
