I am especially interested in any new innovative techniques, inventories, or research on the subject that has taken place since 2000." /Some of the following may be of interest to you.//My deepest thanks to the following for their helpful suggestions: Piermaria Corona (University of Tuscia), Mike Underwood(University of KwaZulu-Natal), Michelle.Gauthier (FAO), and August Temu (ICRAF).

This is a great book:
Edible Forest Gardens, by Dave Jacke http://amzn.to/p7pDwj
Edible Forest Gardens is a groundbreaking two-volume work that spells out and explores the key concepts of forest ecology and applies them to the needs of natural gardeners in temperate climates. Volume I lays out the vision of the forest garden and explains the basic ecological principles that make it work. In Volume II, Dave Jacke and Eric Toensmeier move on to practical considerations:concrete ways to design, establish, and maintain your own forest garden. Along the way they present case studies and examples, as well as tables, illustrations, and a uniquely valuable "plant matrix" that lists hundreds of the best edible and useful species.

He is currently writing a book on Coppice Agroforestry.  I hope it comes out soon.
