Ecosystem Services by Agroforestry
Keywords:Agroforestry, Biodiversity conservation, Carbon sequestration, Ecosystem services
Although agroforestry offers several ecosystem services; however, limited literature resources are available towards proving all these benefits. The following article looks into the diversified contribution of agroforestry towards different attributes, viz.: (1) increasing soil fertility, (2) controlling soil erosion, (3) conserving biodiversity and (4) carbon sequestration. Various research conducted recently postulate the dynamic potential of agroforestry in a changing scenario of climate and land use patterns. It is a novel and evolving technology and provides an alternative to sustainable land resource management. Though poverty alleviation, ecosystem benefits and environment modulation are some of the key services recognized till now, it is a matter of fact that the contribution of agroforestry is dynamic, huge and ever-evolving.
