This volume is a collection of 31 multi-authored, rigorously peer-reviewed chapters on different aspects
of agroforestry, produced as a compendium on the occasion of the 1st World Congress of Agroforestry,
June 2004. Its contenst include a tropical-temperate mix of topics, which is a rare feature of a publication
of this nature. Several of the chapters are on topics that have not been discussed or described much in
agroforestry literature. A third feature is that some of the authors, though well known in their own disciplinary
areas, are somewhat new to agroforestry; the perceptions and outlooks of these scholars who are relatively
uninfluenced by the past happenings in agroforestry gives a whole new dimension to agroforestry and broadens
the scope of the subject. Finally, rather than just reviewing and summarizing past work, most chapters take
the extra effort in attempting to outline the next steps. Agroforestry stands to gain enormously from the infusion
of these new and different ideas and bold initiatives, thus making the title "New Vistas" quite justifiable.
Written for scientists in agroforestry, ecology, economy, sociology.
