CASANOVA-LUGO, Fernando; PETIT-ALDANA, Judith  e  SOLORIO-SANCHE, Javier. Agroforestry systems as an alternative for carbon sequestration in the mexican tropics. Rev. Chapingo [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.1, pp. 133-143. ISSN 0186-3231.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5154/r.rchscfa.2010.08.047.

This paper is a review regarding the role of agroforestry systems (AFS) as an alternative for carbon sequestration in ecosystems in the Mexican tropics. The AFS are presented as a productive and ecologically friendly strategy. It also highlights the importance of the AFS in the global carbon cycle, citing some factors related to carbon sequestration in vegetation and soil. Looking to the future, the need for further studies on the implementation and sustainable development of AFS is outlined. We conclude that AFS are a sustainable alternative to help increase productivity and play a significant role in mitigating global warming in the tropics.
