In this upper division science course students will learn about Agroforestry as a diverse set of land management systems that intentionally integrate woody perennial plants with other crops and/or livestock to produce environmental, economic, and social benefits. Through the use of scientific journal articles and practitioner produced videos, the course will contrast tropical and temperate climate agroforestry options while introducing agroforestry practices that include silvopasture, alley cropping, forest farming, food forests, riparian forest buffers, and windbreaks. The course format is entirely online, with asynchronous work focused on reading and annotating scientific journal articles, and students presenting and discussing findings during synchronous class meetings.
