About the book
This book is intended to highlight the term“Agroecosystems” as complex systems in which many species interact, with ecological processes that take place at different spatial scales, and with strong interactions between ecological and management processes.
The book will cover some general and specific aspects related with different topics as, a) Comparison of agroecosystems with natural ecosystems; b) Agricultural activity in agroecosystems; c) Agroecosystems and environmental risk; d) Species assemblages in agroecosystems; e) Organic versus inorganic fertilizer supplies, and, finally but not at last, f) Agroecology and its relevance to man sustainable management and conservation.
We shall aim to compile information from a diversity of sources to give some real examples extending the actual concept of Agroecosystems that may stimulate new both research ideas and trends in this relevant field. Furthermore, the book shall serve as a text book not only for academia and researchers but also as a reference work for agriculturists, environmentalists and industry professionals in general.
