Ecosystem Services of Agroforestry

Arising from the above ecological foundations, agrofor estry systems have shown to provide several ecosystem services and benefits. While the effects of many of these services and benefits cannot realistically be measured in quantitative terms in relatively short time periods that are common for agricultural production systems, available methods that have been developed for single commodity oriented production systems are not sensitive enough to measure the interactive benefits of mixed species, multiple benefit oriented, integrated agroforestry systems.
