Agroecology: Ecologically-smart farming

Agroecology is the study of ecological processes that affect agriculture and may refer to a science, movement or practice. It looks at the interaction between flora and fauna (including humans) in the environment. It aims to create stable, sustainable, resilient and productive farms. By integrating ecological principles into agricultural systems, novel approaches and techniques may be found that could benefit both ecology and agriculture.
