Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess how soil organic C (SOC) stocks and earthworm communities were modified in agroforestry systems compared to treeless control plots and within the agroforestry plots (tree rows vs alleys). We used a network of 13 silvoarable agroforestry sites in France along a...

AbstractFull Text

Carbon gain by photosynthesis is significant for plant growth and biomass allocation estimations at a tree, stand, and landscape level. Our objective was to develop a leaf carbon model driven by daily light fluctuations and modulated by temperature and air humidity for poplar and black locust trees ...

AbstractFull Text

Agroforestry systems (AFS) are considered to be a sustainable agricultural practice. However, at present, yield and quality data on arable crops in temperate AFS are scarce. Here we assessed the influence of tree rows of contrasting age on the yield and quality of key western European arable crops. ...

AbstractFull Text

Ground-dwelling arthropods play an important role in agricultural systems by providing multiple ecosystem services (ES), such as affecting nutrient and carbon cycling and providing biological pest control. However, potential patterns in presence of these arthropods in temperate agroforestry systems ...

AbstractFull Text

Farmers and rural communities across the American Midwest face numerous sustainability challenges, both economic and environmental. Agroforestry practices present a more sustainable alternative, but key to success is the selection and development of appropriate species to integrate into these...

AbstractFull Text

Developing temperate agroforestry practices can potentially sequester carbon (C), mitigating for rising levels of Green-House Gasses. Hedgerows are a prominent agroforestry system in England and Wales, an estimated 456 000 km of these being actively managed, chiefly using a mechanical flail. Here...

Abstract

The many benefits of agroforestry are well-documented, from ecological functions such as biodiversity conservation and water quality improvement, to cultural functions including aesthetic value. In North American agroforestry, however, little emphasis has been placed on production capacity of the...

Abstract

A leaf net photosynthesis model is presented driven by light and modulated by temperature and air humidity. From this the seasonal variation of CO2 uptake and release could be modelled to estimate the annual carbon fluxes of sun and shade leaves. In fully expanded leaves light is the major factor...

Abstract

How can transforming monocultures to diverse polycultures address and solve the intersecting issues of our food system? This literature review offers community resources, practical examples, and academic research to support the shift away from monocultures, and the broader social contexts that...
