I'm a PhD student whose been looking at the raintree (Samanea saman) when
it occurs at
low densities in an improved grasslands here in north-easdt tropical
The aim of the study was to examine a relatevly "natural" agroforestry system
and work out the effects of the tree on the soil, micoroclimate, water balance,
vegetation and to a some extent the grazing cattle.
More or less I came to some sort of understanding of the ecosystem
the good news for agroforestry, the result confirm the beneficial effects of trees
terms of system stability and productivity.
I'd be interested to hear from anyone else who has been working in this area
make contact with like minded researchers.
