Much of these guidelines can apply in other regions of the world, but as in any science.

      The work of the Asia-Pacific Agroforestry Network (APAN) continues through the publication of APANews, which is jointly produced by the FAO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific and the Institute of Agro Forestry in the Philippines. The Newsletter provides information on agroforestry research, promotion and development, and education and training to researchers, practitioners and policy. His main research interests include smallholder farming systems, natural resources management, adoption and dissemination of innovations, policy analysis, participatory research, fodder trees and impact assessment.

[Nigel D Turvey; Peter Larsen; Land and Water Resources Research and Development Corporation (Australia); Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation (Australia); Forest and Wood Products Research and Development. Agroforestry is now being seen as an alternative paradigm for rural development worldwide, centered on species-rich, low-input agricultural techniques including a diverse array of new indigenous tree crops, rather than on high-input monocultures with only a small set of staple food crops (Leakey, a,b Leakey, a Leakey, b).This alternative paradigm addresses many of the global.

Book: Sustainable development through trees on farms: agroforestry in its fifth decade As a concept agroforestry has now entered its fifth decade, as a practice it probably is as old as agriculture.

This book takes stock of how concepts and practice of agroforestry have changed in .Research and Development.

There was a unanimous call by the authors for more research o­n agroforestry. To help overcome the information gap in agroforestry, research should be regional and site-specific so that landowners do not have to rely o­n results from other, dissimilar regions.
