Abstract

Agroforestry, which is the integration of trees into monoculture cropland, can alter soil properties and nutrient cycling. Temperate agroforestry practices have been shown to affect soil microbial communities as indicated by changes in enzyme activities, substrate-induced respiration, and microbial ...

Abstract

Temperate agroforestry systems are being strongly promoted for ecological reasons in many regions of the world. Pest management in these highly-structured environments is however barely studied, despite widespread claims of increased biological control enhanced by the presence of trees and grassy...

Abstract

Agroforestry can provide ecosystem services and benefits such as soil erosion control, microclimate modification for yield enhancement, economic diversification, livestock production and well-being, and water quality protection. Through increased structural and functional diversity in agricultural...

Abstract

Agroforestry systems, which incorporate trees into agricultural land, could contribute to sustainable agricultural intensification as they have been shown to increase land productivity, biodiversity and some regulating ecosystem services. However, the effect of temperate agroforestry systems on...

Abstract

The dramatic decline of invertebrates at a global scale is mainly driven by habitat loss, agricultural intensification and urbanization. Alley cropping agroforestry is a land use practice in which arable crops are grown between tree rows. In such systems, understory vegetation strips (UVS) develop...

Abstract

This study investigates the spatial and temporal impact of microclimate conditions caused by poplar hedgerows in a short rotation alley cropping system (SRACS), and their effect on the atmospheric evaporative demand (AED) and the grain crop yield of winter wheat (Triticum aestivum var. Patras) in...
