Silvopastoral systems

This research theme’s overarching hypothesis is that the establishment and better management of tree cover on pastures can contribute simultaneously to higher livestock productivity, animal welfare and biodiversity conservation, as well as restoring degraded rangelands and avoiding future degradation. This leads to the following key research questions. What is the relationship between tree cover and pasture and animal productivity and welfare in silvopastoral systems? Where are there tradeoffs and synergies between production goals and the provision of other ecosystem services?
