Tropical 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 need to develop and make available educational material. This textbook strives to provide up-to-date information on tropical agroforestry to serve as educational material in the tropical context. The authoritative textbook of Nair (1993) on agroforestry was published 18 years ago, and before the advent of tree domestication, an important agroforestry practice today. In addition, many other research activities, such as carbon sequestration and integrated pest management, have been included in the agroforestry agenda. This textbook is intended for agroforestry students, teachers, and practitioners.
Rezension
From the book reviews:
"Atangana (Univ. of Alberta, Canada), along with two colleagues from Canada and one from Cameroon, have done an excellent job of presenting the basic ideas and supporting them with examples from throughout the tropics. ... the book is an important resource because of its clear presentation and broad coverage. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, researchers/faculty, and professionals/practitioners." (B. D. Orr, Choice, Vol. 51 (11), July, 2014)
"The 21 chapters of the 380-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 the teacher and the taught. ... the book is an outstanding contribution to the development of agroforestry and the reviewer once again congratulate the authors on this significant achievement." (P. K. R. Nair, Agroforestry Systems, Vol. 88, 2014)
Portrait

Alain R. Atangana received a Ph. D. 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. He also investigated rooting ability in priority tree species for domestication using leafy stem cuttings. Alain has published in eleven peer-reviewed journals, including Food Chemistry, Tree Genetics and Genomes, Molecular Ecology Resources, Forest Ecology and Management, Canadian Journal of Forest Research, Forest Science and Agroforestry Systems
