Transpiration and water uptake have a direct effect on systems productivity and hence food security
Limited knowledge on water use of different tree species
TropiTree contains the assembled expressed transcripts from an RNA-seq study of a set of 24 important tropical tree species, along with the microsatellites discovered within them and primer pairs designed to the microsatellite markers.
This tool enables you to select useful tree species for planting anywhere in Africa using Google Earth. In 2012, we prepared an updated version of this tool, especially enhancing the information provided in the "species selector" spread sheets.
This book provides helps readers to better understand the options available when selecting a guide, or tool, for value chain development (VCD). The book compares the concepts and methods endorsed and assesses the strengths and limitations of the guides for steering development practice.
The World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) is a CGIAR Consortium Research Centre. ICRAF’s headquarters are in Nairobi, Kenya, with six regional offices located in Cameroon, China, India, Indonesia, Kenya and Peru. ICRAF generates science-based knowledge about the diverse benefits - both direct and indirect - of agroforestry, or trees in farming systems and agricultural landscapes, and disseminates this knowledge to develop policy options and promote practices that improve livelihoods and benefit the environment.
