Epidemiology and management of apple scab
Although there are major resistance genes identified against V. inaequalis, nearly all commercial dessert cultivars are susceptible to V. inaequalis, thus requiring stringent control measures to minimise crop losses. This chapter introduces apple scab and explains the epidemiology of the disease, covering both host resistance and techniques of managing scab. Finally, the chapter looks ahead to future research trends on scab. 


Epidemiology and management of apple scab
One way of achieving these principles is the use of integrated crop-livestock systems, which is very common for well-balanced organic systems with animals. This chapter reviews types of such systems, with a focus on agroforestry systems, their potential environmental and economic benefits, their contributions to animal health and welfare, as well as challenges in implementing and managing such systems whilst ensuring a high animal health and welfare level. 


Transitioning monocultures to complex forest stands in Central Europe: principles and practice
This chapter contrasts even-aged monoculture forests and selection forests, describing the transition from monocultures to more complex forest stands. The chapter presents practical examples of transformation and models for scenario analysis, as well as explaining the principles of selection forest management. Finally, the chapter looks ahead to future research trends in this area. 


The role of biodiversity in agroforestry and other types of smallholder farming
The global supply and consumption of food has increased over the last 50 years. However, due to our focus on increased productivity, our access to diverse and healthy foods has radically reduced. Many people remain hungry and increasing numbers have micronutrient deficiencies.
