Agroforestry is the science and practice of integrating trees on farms and agricultural landscapes for economic, environmental, and social benefits. It is increasingly recognized as a key component of sustainable tropical land use. This subject provides a general introduction to agroforestry, drawing on examples of both traditional and newer systems and practices from throughout the tropical world. Lectures on the socioecoonomic and environmental roles of agroforestry are punctuated by group work, aimed at giving students opportunity to deepen and share their knowledge of specific aspects and issues, and by day-long field trips.
