Dear all

We are thrilled to have a good number of students signed up to the Agroecology Basics course. The course is a primer to the agroecology MSc program, but some of you may be taking AE Basics as a standalone course. I have now uploaded the time schedule. The schedule getting more complete, with some small things later in the program that may shift/be added. I will notify you of this. From the course start (which is tomorrow as I write this) the course information site will be CANVAS to which you should all have access by tomorrow afternoon (if not let Katarina Lantz know)

Recently, the long-awaited IPCC report has been released. The message is clear: no time to waste if we wish to keep the earth for future generations. Agroecology has important roles to play in the transformation of agroecosystems to. We need bright minds to work together to bring about change ...

Looking forward to meeting you all

  1. Agroecology: the ecology of sustainable food systems Författare: Gliessman ISBN: 9781498728461 1498728464 [Agroecology: the ecology of sustainable food systems] (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1XkrWZtQz3ZLf5Edaf3CI6IxRY97brpfR/view?usp=sharing) Kommentar: This book will be a background reading for course participants to catch up with concepts in agriculture. It provides students with some basic understanding of what constitutes agroecosystems and how to sustainably transform these such that production and ecosystem stability may go hand in hand. A pdf version can be found here:
  2. Agroecology: the science of sustainable agriculture Författare: Miguel Altierri ISBN: 0-8133-1717-7 [Agroecology: the science of sustainable agriculture] (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1T30gnx24i5Y7Sva2DaU6CgLwpsDnB0AA/view?usp=sharing) Kommentar: Another book which provides a good background in the origins of agroecology and how to integrate traditional practises and insights and scientific ecological concepts to create more sustainable production systems.

  4. Agroecology as a science, a movement and a practice. A review Författare: Wezel et al. [Agroecology as a science, a movement and a practice. A review] (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_rlqjCGUs-l0Cesb1GoqrA05seye0TC9/view?usp=sharing) Kommentar: An important article in the field of agroecology, which shows the roots and the main concepts of agroecology.
