Summary
Interactions Between Agroecosystems and Rural Communities explores how human behavior impacts agroecosystems both positively and negatively. It provides you with an understanding of alternative ways of working with human communities to increase agroecosystem sustainability. Through a general overview and a series of case studies, the book demonstrates how changes in the economy influence what local people can do to sustain agroecosystems. It also highlights specific community-based actions that have resulted in more sustainable agroecosystems
