AbstractFull Text

Dehesa agroforestry systems (rangelands located in Southwest Spain) are characterised by their semi-arid and often marginal conditions. In this sense, the study of the role of carbon footprint in extensive systems is of great interest by analysing, within a case study framework, the two production...
