Full Description


The ecological consequences of agricultural development in the tropics are described in this book, emphasizing the effects upon tropical climate, soils and vegetation, and proposing schemes for resource management. The results of deforestation, intensive land use and the use of agrochemicals and farm machinery are considered in terms of the alteration to the physical and hydrological prospects of soil, microclimate and productivity. The important role of soil biota and macrofauna in maintaining favourable levels of soil physical properties is also examined. The quality of the management of tropical resources affects the level of agricultural production obtained so proposals are made for suitable farming systems and soil management strategies which will both preserve the resource and sustain economic production.
