This volume contains a solid body of the current state of knowledge on the various themes and activities in agroforestry worldwide. It is organized into three sections: the Introduction section consists of the summaries of six keynote speeches at the 2nd World Congress of Agroforestry held in Nairobi, Kenya, in 2009; that is followed by two sections of peer-reviewed thematic chapters grouped as "Global Perspectives" (seven chapters) and "Regional Perspectives" (eleven chapters), authored by professional leaders in their respective agroforestry-related fields worldwide. A total of 130 professionals from institutions in 33 countries in both developing and the industrialized temperate regions of the world contributed to the book as chapter authors and/or reviewers. Thus, the book presents a comprehensive and authoritative account of the global picture of agroforestry today.

From the reviews:

"This book is derived from the 2nd World Agroforestry Congress, held in Kenya in 2009. Each of its three sections provides a different perspective on agroforestry. ... the synthesis of recent information is not duplicated in typical journal articles and represents a significant contribution to the understanding of agroforestry today. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (B. D. Orr, Choice, Vol. 50 (11), July, 2013)

"The book is well written, beautifully produced and contains a wealth of information on agroforestry today. ... All the chapters are of high quality, containing detailed, state-of-the-art, up-to-date information on the different topics of interest to a broader, multidisciplinary audience. ... It is of interest to anyone engaged in the practice of agroforestry, forestry or agriculture. ... I recommend it to both undergraduates and postgraduate students of agroforestry, forestry, agriculture, ecology or biology, and that a copy of the book is purchased for institutional libraries." (Zewge Teklehaimanot, Frontiers of Biogeography, Vol. 5 (3), 2013)
