Abstract

Background and aims: Root system architecture regulates belowground access to soil resources. Variation in root architecture is important in agroforestry systems given management objectives to optimize resource acquisition between trees and crops. However, the distributions of live tree roots in...

Abstract

A stumbling block to the adoption of silvoarable agroforestry systems is the lack of quantitative knowledge on the performance of different crops when competing for resources with trees. In North-Western Europe, light is likely to be the principal limiting resource for understorey crops, and most...

Abstract

The vision of the first Agroforestry Conference held in Guelph, Canada was "to provide a forum within which people working in temperate North America agroforestry systems could interact and exchange idea". Agroforestry research has progressed considerably over the last 25 years. The wealth of...

Abstract

Quantifying the impacts of agroforestry systems (AFS) on habitat conservation remains a challenge due to difficulties in accounting for differences in scales, AFS configurations, and inadequate measures of species dynamics within practical time frames. The field of soundscape ecology offers new...

Abstract

White clover/perennial ryegrass mixtures (Trifolium repens L., Lolium perenne L.) are potential understory candidates for temperate agroforestry systems. A 2-year artificial shade experiment was conducted to determine the effects of shade on herbage production and quality and on changes in sward...

Abstract

Adoption of temperate agroforestry practices generally remains limited despite considerable advances in basic science. This study builds on temperate agroforestry adoption research by empirically testing a statistical model of interest in native fruit and nut tree riparian buffers using technology...

Abstract

Aim: We studied the vertical and lateral root distribution of tree species from three genera (Populus spp. - poplar, Picea spp. - spruce, Salix spp. - willow) that were planted in temperate windbreaks and assessed the effects of soil texture on root density. Methods: Root distribution to depths of...
