By G. Schroth (auth.), Daniel Auclair, Christian Dupraz (eds.)

This quantity includes a range of unique contributions offered at a workshop held in Montpellier, France, in June 1997. the 2 major pursuits of the workshop have been, first of all, to assemble what's understood in regards to the methods underlying agroforestry perform, and, secondly, to supply a discussion board to discover appropriate types and modelling ways. The workshop was once additionally capable of play a task in studying the agroforestry structures encountered in temperate and Mediterranean components, together with either conventional and extra leading edge agroforestry practices. the most features mentioned have been: ecological interactions among parts, environmental effect, economics and coverage modelling.

This approach is 'tree oriented'. This is the consequence of the implicit choice of a sole herbaceous crop as a comparative basis. If a pure tree stand had been taken as a reference, the hypothesis would have been formulated as: the crop must acquire resources that the trees would not otherwise acquire. And if a combination of both pure crops and pure tree stands was the reference, the approach would no longer be apposite, as stated by Vandermeer (1989). But the resource capture approach could be further developed.
