  • Chapter
  • First Online:
Silvopastoral Systems in Southern South America

Part of the book series: Advances in Agroforestry ((ADAG,volume 11))

Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to synthesize the features of silvopastoral system research and practices presented in the previous chapters. Also, based on the analysis of the various systems presented so far, there are recommendations on future research and policy to promote silvopastoral systems in the region, and thus capitalize on the various opportunities and benefits that these productive systems provide.
