Abstract:
This review highlights the development of production systems based on sound ecological principles as well as on physiological and genetic principles that hold the most promise for addressing the challenges of the 21st century. This chapter also focuses on organic farming, on genetic systems and how these can underlie and supplement ecological approaches for improving agricultural systems. The importance of integrating ecological and genetic approaches to optimize agroecosystem sustainability is also discussed.
