A Systems Approach to Agroecology
The social and ecological complexity of agroecosystems, their dynamics, uncertainties and sustainability, calls for an holistic, systemic approach to agroecology, which leads to questions such as: how do we deal with heterogeneity, landscapes, biodiversity or learning processes in agroecosystems analysis? How do we categorize diversity or analyse trade-offs in social-ecological interactions? How do we conceptualize, co-design and monitor agroecological transitions? This book sets out to answer these questions by building on the valuable ‘classics’ in agroecology. The book presents a systems perspective that underpins a combination of methodologies, ranging from participatory tools and field observations to mathematical simulation modelling. Researchers, advanced students and transdisciplinary practitioners will find in this book insights and methods to design research and (co-) innovation processes to foster agroecological transitions.
