BOOK REVIEWS: Valuing Agroforestry Systems: Methods and Applications
Abstract:Agroforestry has long been touted as a management approach with potential for gaining synergies between agricultural and forest production. A staple approach in developing-country situations, agroforestry systems are increasingly being considered in developed-country settings. However, socioeconomic analyses of agroforestry systems have long lagged behind natural science contributions. This volume, the second in the series “Advances in Agroforestry,” makes a significant step in promoting the social science importance of agroforestry. The editors have assembled a nice collection of studies regarding the valuation of agroforestry systems around the world, encompassing developing and developed country settings. The approaches used arise largely from an economics disciplinary background, but there is much in here of interest to a broader, multidisciplinary audience.
