Agroecosystem models for delivering ecosystem services

Code: 9781786765246
Jerry L. Hatfield, Christian Dold, Erica J. Kistner-Thomas and Kenneth M. Wacha, USDA-ARS, USA

Chapter synopsis: Agroecosystems are complex representations of the interactions occurring among multiple biological systems at the field and landscape scale. Models simulating these interactions across time and space are not very mature and expanding our current knowledge on crop, pest, and soils models provides a framework for how we use agroecological models to quantify a range of ecosystem services. This chapter examines the need for an agroecosystem approach, outlining the importance of plants, soils, pests, diseases, weeds and pollinators as part of the agroecosystem. Finally, the chapter looks ahead to future research trends in this area.
