The potential of agroforestry to increase the production of food, fodder, fibre, feedstock and fertilizer led the Commonwealth Science Council to organize a workshop, in March 1986, entitled 'Amelioration of soils by trees'. The papers that were presented ai this workshop, held in Lucknow, India, have now been published in a volume 'that scrutinizes the belief that the fertility of marginal and degraded lands can be enhanced by the use of nitrogenfixing trees'. It reports on the results of many researchers working in Asia and Africa and offers various proposals to continue investigating the links between trees and soil fertility. Prinsley, R.T. and M.J.
