In Agroecology,experts from diverse disciplines define the basic concepts,research methodologies,sociopolitical aspects,and future directions of this rapidly developing field. This unique multidisciplinary review shows how researchers can learn to: develop cost-effective,environmentally sound agricultural practices; prevent the further degradation of such resources as water,land and fossil fuels; create inexpensive agricultural technology for developing countries; deal effectively with social,cultural,and political obstacles to the development of a more productive world agriculture. With today's intense concern over hunger and environmental degradation,Agroecology is essential reading for researchers working in agronomy,horticulture,ecology,botany,rural sociology,agricultural economics,and related disciplines.
