Los árboles en los sistemas forrajeros del trópico húmedo una alternativa en el manejo de cuencas Simposio internacional sobre las ciencias forestales y su contribución al desarrollo de la América Tropical. Memorias

by (ed.); APOLO B, W.A; Chavarría, M; CONICIT, San José (Costa Rica); Simposio Internacional sobre las Ciencias Forestales y su Contribución al Desarrollo de la América Tropical, San José (Costa Rica), 11-17 Oct 1979.
Publisher: San José (Costa Rica), 1981 Description: p.161-170.Subject(s): ARBOLES Y ANIMALES | CUENCAS | TROPICO HUMEDOSummary: A brief literature search of modern trends combining livestock raising and the production of timber in the tropics showed the increasing acceptance of these programs by both foresters and agronomists. These systems could partly offset the disastrous effects of bad range management, namely overgrazing. Well integrated systems of stock raising and tree plantations, besides the immediate added income, could represent a feasible approach toward adequate watershed management in the wet hilly tropics. This view is documented by the inclusion of graphics showing the relation between forest cover and surface drainage.
