  1. Multi-Scale Integrated Analysis of Agroecosystems

    By Mario Giampietro

    Series: Advances in Agroecology

    Ecologists, agronomists, and others who may question the validity of current models for determining sustainable growth of agroecosystems, need a new set of analytical tools that more effectively address the complex nature of related processes. Those who challenge traditional assumptions of...

  2. Soil Tillage in Agroecosystems

    Edited by Adel El Titi

    Series: Advances in Agroecology

    Soil tillage is, and will remain, the guiding component of soil management and consequently has far-reaching implications for agroecosystems. Understanding structures and functions of soil ecosystems under different tillage/no tillage practices is an essential requirement for any future farming...

  3. Tropical Agroecosystems

    Edited by John H. Vandermeer

    Series: Advances in Agroecology

    Tropical areas present ecological, cultural and political problems that demand analysis that is distinct from general ecological analysis. The tropical environment is special in many ways, from the lack of a biological down season (winter), to generally poor soil conditions, to a reliance on...

  4. Landscape Ecology in Agroecosystems Management

    Edited by Lech Ryszkowski

    Series: Advances in Agroecology

    Successful management of agricultural landscapes depends on the recognition of the relationships between the processes and the structures that maintain the system. The rapidly growing science of Landscape Ecology quantifies the ways these ecosystems interact and establishes a link between the...

  5. Structure and Function in Agroecosystem Design and Management

    Edited by Masae Shiyomi, Hiroshi Koizumi

    Series: Advances in Agroecology

    Structure and Function in Agroecosystem Design and Management presents an advanced discussion of the need to design agricultural systems that 1) increase reliance on biological interactions in agroecosystems as a means of decreasing dependence on the use of large quantities of agrochemicals and the...

  6. Interactions Between Agroecosystems and Rural Communities

    Edited by Cornelia Flora

    Series: Advances in Agroecology

    There is an increasing realization among biophysical scientists that human behavior drastically impacts the degree to which sound agroecosystems are implemented. Written by an international team of experts assembled by a leading rural sociologist, Interactions Between Agroecosystems and Rural...

  7. Agroecosystem Sustainability

    Developing Practical Strategies

    Edited by Stephen R. Gliessman

    Series: Advances in Agroecology

    Agroecologists from around the world share their experiences in the analysis and development of indicators of agricultural sustainability in Agroecosystem Sustainability: Developing Practical Strategies. The authors build on the resource-conserving aspects of traditional, local, and small-scale...

  8. Agroforestry in Sustainable Agricultural Systems

    Edited by Louise E. Buck, James P. Lassoie, Erick C.M. Fernandes

    Series: Advances in Agroecology

    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...

  9. Biodiversity in Agroecosystems

    Edited by Wanda W. Collins, Calvin O. Qualset

    Series: Advances in Agroecology

    between the diversity of plant and animal species and host/dependent agricultural systems. Biodiversity in Agroecosystems shows how biodiversity can be thought of not only as the rich make-up of a great number of related and competing species within an ecologically defined community, but also as...

  10. 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...
