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.

Also examines the important role of soil biota and macrofauna in maintaining favourable levels of soil physical properties. Presents farming systems and soil management strategies which would preserve the soil resource and also sustain economic production.
