Open access peer-reviewed chapter. Multi-Analytical Interactions in Support of Sugarcane Agroecosystems Sustainability in Tropical Soils. By Acacio Aparecido Navarrete, Leonardo Machado Pitombo, Carolina Braga Brandani, Camila Bolfarini Bento, Andrea Sibila B. Escanhoela, Juliana Cristina Ramos, Leticia Pedroso Ramos, Hélio Danilo Quevedo, Caroline Sayuri Nishisaka and Janaina Braga Author: Acacio Aparecido Navarrete, Leonardo Machado Pitombo, CarolinaBraga Brandani, Camila Bolfarini Bento. The implications of biodiversity loss for the global environment have been widely discussed, but only recently has attention been paid to its direct and serious effects on human health. Biodiversity loss affects the spread of human diseases, causes a loss of medical models, diminishes the supplies of raw materials for drug discovery and biotechnology, and threatens food production and water 5/5(1).

Agroecology (a-grō-ē-ˈkä-lə-jē) is the study of ecological processes applied to agricultural production systems. Bringing ecological principles to bear can suggest new management approaches in term is often used imprecisely. Agroecologists study a variety of agroecosystems. The field of agroecology is not associated with any one particular method of farming, whether it Product(s): food, ecosystem services. The book, although not comprehensive, covers many aspects and examples in addressing these issues. Six chapters will be of particular interest to readers of Ecology and Society. The second chapter, which has a bevy of authors, looks at human disruptions of element interactions, including drivers, consequences, and trends in the 21st century.
