  However, adoption of alley cropping and other agroforestry systems has been hampered by a lack of understanding of interspecific interactions involving system components and their impact on system productivity and sustainability. This is especially true for temperate agroforestry systems, where research efforts have gained momentum only in. Tree-crop interactions may be complementary, neutral or competitive in agroforestry systems, depending on the species and the environment. With no tree-crop interactions and a uniform distribution of plants and topography in Site C, spatial dynamics of soil properties of the “no tree” site are not of interest, making few random samples Cited by: 5.

The invasive Pacific red lionfish (Pterois volitans) poses a threat to western Atlantic and Caribbean coral reef systems. Lionfish are small-bodied predators that can reduce the abundance and diversity of native fishes via predation. Additionally, native predators or competitors appear to have a negligible effect on similarly sized by: Agroforestry would then simply refer to the integration of trees into farming systems and agroecology to the study of ecological interactions in agriculture, regardless of who is doing the farming. However, the term 'agroecology' in particular is often loaded with connotations about social justice and .

The rate and extent to which biophysical resources are captured and utilized by the components of an agroforestry system are determined by the nature and intensity of interactions between the components.

Analysis of ecological interactions has shown both competitive and facilitative (complementary) interactions in agroforestry systems, which occur both above‐ and below‐ground. Competition and facilitation are not necessarily independent of each other; the balance between these factors may vary along a resource gradient.

Trees in agroforestry systems Competitive interactions in agroforestry systems book often been portrayed as nutrient and water 'pumps' that convey beneficial site effects to associated crops and pasture.

Recent experimental evidence and re-review of the literature (especially that on temperate zone shelterbelts, arboreal shade in perennial plantation crops, and arid zone parkland systems - i.e.

scattered trees in fields) have shown that trees Cited by: 7. Abstract. Agroforestry systems are traditional land use systems that were and are used in Europe. They can be defined as those land use systems which involve two main components — trees/shrubs and an agricultural crop (which could also be pasture) and are artificially by: Realizing these beneficial adaption services will require additional work to develop improved combinations and arrangements of species that better maximize facilitative interactions, while minimizing the competitive interactions between crop and trees (Jose et al.
