Tree legumes serve a multitude of purposes in agriculture and forestry, including forage for animal production, fuelwood and timber production, soil conservation and fertility improvement. Their role and potential are being increasingly recognized for both intensive and extensive agroforestry systems, particularly in humid and semiarid regions of the tropics. Forage tree legumes in tropical agriculture provides an introduction to forage tree legumes for advanced students of crop science, animal nutrition and forestry. It describes the main genera and species concerned including Leucaena, Sesbania, Calliandra, Acacia, Prosopis and many others. Chapters on the production and management of tree legumes are followed by others which describe animal production, and include topics such as nutritive value and antinutritive factors.
