Past, Present and Future Hydrological Research for Integrated Land and Water Management. Author: M. Bonell,L. A. Bruijnzeel; Publisher: Cambridge University Press ISBN: Category: Science Page: N.A View: DOWNLOAD NOW» Forests, Water and People in the Humid Tropics is a comprehensive review of the hydrological and physiological functioning of tropical .

      One of the most vexing questions facing forestry today is whether sustainable forestry is possible in natural forests. In this publication past forest management failures are analysed and more productive, sustainable and equitable practices are suggested. It is argued that a narrow focus on sustained timber yield often leads to failure as species diversity may decrease and watersheds . The humid highlands in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) are characterized by high population densities and require intensification. The Consortium for Improving Agriculture-based Livelihoods in Central Africa (CIALCA) has set up a research for development platform in various mandate areas in DR Congo, Burundi, and Rwanda, aiming to identify improved production, market, and .

      Water resources management policy responses to land cover change in Southeast Asian river basins; 9. Community-based hydrological and water quality assessments: a case study from the Philippines; Part II. Hydrological Processes in Undisturbed Forest: An overview of the meteorology and climatology of the humid tropics; Price: $ In the humid part of the USA, irrigation waters are drawn from streams, lakes, ponds, or groundwater, but groundwater is the major source of irrigation water. In humid regions, more water may be needed than that which falls on the land if both crop production and crop processing are involved.

The journal publishes papers of international significance relating to the science, economics, and policy of agricultural water management.

In all cases, manuscripts must address implications and provide insight regarding agricultural water management.

The primary topics that we consider are the following: • Farm-level and regional water. The abundant weed growth in the humid and sub-humid tropics is one of the most serious constraints in producing crops, establishing pastures and maintaining water resources.

This book presents historic and recent data on the biology of weeds and their control, within the general context of the husbandry of crops and the management of pastures Author: P.J. van Rijn. The role of women in the humid tropics in water resources management cannot therefore be over emphasized.

Sources of Water The most common sources of water in the rural areas are ponds, streams, springs, lakes, rivers, rainwater, hand. Research information on methods of deforestation for conversion to agricultural land use and on soil and crop management systems for the sustained use of soil and water resources in the humid tropics is presented.

Examples of appropriate techniques and their impact on production, soil quality and the environment are given and the characteristics of improved farming system. This book considers all aspects of hydrology in the humid tropics.
