It reviews decades of agricultural change to provide an integrated analysis of the progress of research and development in agroecological farming practices.
Topics include increasing sustainability in Mediterranean cropping systems with self-reseeding annual legumes, manipulating plant biodiversity to enhance biological control of insect pests, nematode communities as ecological indicators of agroecosystem health, and a policy oriented analysis of socioenvironmental dynamics with special reference to forest margins in North Lampung, Indonesia.

Completely revised, updated, and reworked, the second edition contains new data, new readings, new issues and case studies, and new options. It includes two completely new chapters, one on the role of livestock animals in agroecosystems and one on the cultural and community aspects of sustainable food systems. The author clearly delineates the importance of using an ecosystem framework for determining if a particular agricultural practice, input, or management decision contributes or detracts from sustainability. He explains how the framework provides the ecological basis for the functioning of the chosen management strategy over the long-term.
