The History of Temperate Agroforestry.

INTRODUCTION
The term ‘agroforestry’ was first coined in 1977 to describe the integration of trees and agriculture, and can be defined as follows:
A collective name for land - use systems in which woody perennials (trees, shrubs, et c.) are grown in association with herbaceous plants (crops, pastures) or livestock, in a spatial arrangement, a rotation, or both; there are usually both ecological and economic interactions between the trees and other components of the system.
