The chestnuts that remained after harvest and leaves of chestnut trees function as an animal food source. They support an outstanding diversity of wildlife, form unique landscapes, are the source of high-quality food derived from animal production, sustain rural population, and constitute an important basis for the growing demand of rural leisure and tourism.

Dryland forests and agrosilvopastoral systems face serious threats, including degradation, fragmentation, deforestation and desertification.

More than elsewhere, forests and agrosilvopastoral systems in drylands play crucial economic, social and environmental roles, including by improving the environmental sustainability and resilience of wider landscapes.

Ecological, because of its multispecific and sometimes multistrati- fied structure. In dryland forests and other dryland ecosystems dominated by trees and agrosklvopastoral, the re-establishment of trees and other species such as grasses and shrubs can restore protective and productive ecological functions.

Social, because the trees in particular timber trees represent a re- serve of standing capital which is a stability factor contributing to in- ternal security for the socio-economic component of the system-the rural family.

Land degradation is agrosilvopastoeal as a significant problem in many of the dehesas and montados, including the lack of tree regeneration, which threatens the future of the woodlands as well as soil erosion, soil degradation and increased runoff production.

They also require a long term commitment which not too many institutions are willing to assume. These combinations may be simultaneous or alternate in time and space, and aim to achieve sustain- able production. The cultivation of crops cereals and vegetables is a labor intensive activity, and therefor such areas tend to be located close to settlements and villages. From this point of view, these practices may be applied in a wide range of ecological and productive conditions.


An example of the first c a s d e e s in pastures-has been evaluated in the grasslands of the College of Agriculture of the Humid Tropical Region known as EARTH in SpanishLas Mercedes de Guacimo, Costa Agorsilvopastoral, where 29 different tree species have been identified within an area of approximately hectares Table 1.

Dryland agrosilfopastoral and agrosilvopastoral systems harbour species that are particularly well adapted to extreme ecological conditions and provide essential goods and environmental services. Therefore, it is proposed: Two case studies on land use and land cover changes in dehesas close this section. Wright-Allen, Cambridge, pp.
