The role of woody plants in this region, as assessed in this book, is extrapolated to other semi-arid regions, leading to general conclusions on agroforestry's potential as an option for sustainable land use in semi-arid regions.

The origins of this book go back towhen the Club du Sahel requested that available data on woody plants in the Sahel region be synthesised, to provide basic information to enable better attention to be given to woody plants.

Woody plants can play a significant role in the transition phase of agrosilvopastoral systems in semi-arid regions from extensive systems to intensified systems. Woody plants provide buffering functions, stabilizing ecosystem dynamics, and allowing effective use of additional nutrient an water inputs, or allowing effective use of these.

Woody plants in semi-arid savanna ecosystems are able to persist under intense herbivory due to key adaptations that include structural defences, chemical defences and compensatory growth abilities of the plants.

The relationship between plant defences and high compensatory growth abilities of the plants are poorly understood. - Woody plant invasion at a semi-aridarid transition zone - within ecosystems dominated either by B.

eriopoda or B. gracilis, and located within 1 km of the ecosystem dominated by L. tridentata. Sapling patterns The presence and size distributions of saplings of L. tridentata in each ecosystem. Pastoralism and agro-pastoralism are the major modes of life in arid and semi-arid rangelands.

However, rangeland quality and quantity are rapidly deteriorating due to a number of natural and human-induced factors, one of which is bush encroachment. Little is known on how bush encroachment affects the ecosystem functions and services expressed in terms of the native.

Climate variability and human activities interact to increase the abundance of woody plants in arid and semi-arid ecosystems worldwide. How woody plants interact with rainfall to inuence patterns of soil moisture through time, at different depths in the soil prole and between neighboring landscape patches is.

However, the woody vegetation is threatened by both natural and anthropogenic activities at global, national and local levels. Piospheres in semi-arid areas are gradients of animal impacts around watering holes.

Few studies have examined the impact dynamics of herbaceous and woody species composition and abundance in relation to piospheres in East Africa. In this study, we identified the trend in piosphere development, assessed piosphere use and change indicators, and identified herbaceous and woody plant.

Grain and biomass yields and harvest index of pigeonpea did not vary significantly among the agroforestry systems. within ecosystems experiencing woody encroachment. Available data indicate that relative to the historic vegetation, aboveground net primary production (ANPP) decreases with woody plant encroachment in arid regions (mean annual precipitation (MAP) regions (on the order of g C m2 yr1 per mm.

Growth of Agro-Forestry in Arid Zone. Agro-forestry implies the integration of farming with forestry practices on the farm to the benefit of agriculture. There is much common between agriculture and forestry which together with animal husbandry form an interrelated, interconnected and interdependent area, because all these are dependent on land.

Article shared by. Semi-arid regions are those regions which receive low rainfall (between cm annually) and experience climate between desert and humid. Since semi-arid ecosystems receive little rainfall, they do not support forest growth.

Introduction [2] The interaction between vegetation and soil moisture dynamics contributes to structure and function in arid and semiarid ecosystems [e.

Noy-Meir, ; Walker et al. ; Scholes and Archer, ; Rietkerk and van de Koppel, ]. The establishment and growth of dryland vegetation depends on the availability of soil water resources [e. D'Odorico and Porporato. Many arid regions of the globehave undergone dramatic changes in vegetation during the last century.

In the southwestern United this is exemplified by large areas of semiarid grasslands that have been replaced by arid shrublands during the last years, such as in the Jornada Basin in southern New Mexico.

If further changes in the transition between grassland and shrubland are to be. A woody plant functional trait that directly affects its fitness and environment is decisive to ensure the success of an Agroforestry practice.

Hence, recognizing the woody plant functional traits is very important to boost and sustain the productivity of the system when different plants are sharing common resources, like in Agroforestry system.

In park land systems, the woody plant component is comprised of C3 species and the crop of C4 (including grass weeds). On other hand, a major reason for practicing agroforestry land use systems is domestication of soil.
