Plantations and the problems that might arise if the massive tree plantations currently being suggested for the tropics were to be established. The report is based on extensive bibliographical research into what has become a highly controversial topic, one which is in fact riddled with conflicting 'evidence', as was illustrated by the review File Size: KB.

Based on thorough bibliographic research of a highly controversial topic, this report, jointly sponsored by IUCN, UNEP and WWF, shows the potential of plantations, while also exposing problems which may arise if massive tree plantations proposed for the tropics are to be established.

Major issues covered include; species selection, soil and water cycle effects, fires, pests and diseases. Tree-planting and plantation forestry in tropical countries are expanding rapidly.

Social and community forestry, tree planting to control soil erosion, and the use of agroforestry, as well as many industrial afforestation projects, are all part of the response to tropical deforestation and are central to much rural development.

It is generally assumed that soil fertility decline is widespread in the tropics and that this is largely associated with annual cropping and subsistence farming. In contrast, perennial plant cover (as in plantation agriculture) provides better protection for the soil.

This book reviews these concepts, focusing on soil chemical changes under different land-use systems in the tropics, including. The research indicated that soil fertility at many plantations in the tropics is affected by continuous crop cultivation.
