Contents Notes
Agricultural crops are prominent features of an increasing number of variously perturbed ecosystems and the landscapes occupied by these ecosystems. Yet the ecology of agriculturally dominated landscapes has, until now, received limited scientific attention. Including contributions from leading researchers. Ecology in Agriculture focuses on the practical application of ecological principles in agriculture. The book clearly establishes the unique ties between agricultural and ecological sciences and details the ecophysiological processes that regulate productivity and resource use by crops. It also describes the community ecology of these sorts of ecosystems and the processes that operate throughout these agricultural landscapes. Anyone interested in the relationship between ecology and agriculture, including agronomists, plant scientists, foresters, and those in related agricultural disciplines, should find this volume useful.
