    The book is true to its title and despite some inevitable overlaps, forms a satisfying whole. --S.J. Ramsden, in Experimental Agriculture, (), Volume 46 (3) This timely work shows us how the early concept of an agricultural ecosystem has evolved into a focus on the complexity of sustainable agroecosystem management.   Agroecologists from around the world share their experiences in the analysis and development of indicators of agricultural sustainability in Agroecosystem Sustainability: Developing Practical Strategies. The authors build on the resource-conserving aspects of traditional, local, and small-scale agriculture while at the same time drawing on modern ecological knowledge and methods.

In the marceño system, the native maize, called “ mején ”, is cultivated during the dry season using residual soil moisture. At physiological maturity, mején is tolerant to flooding. To estimate the potential area where marceño may be implemented, we Author: Humberto Peraza-Villarreal, Alejandro Casas, Roberto Lindig-Cisneros, Alma Orozco-Segovia.
