Tropical Home Gardens.   It was hypothesised that the land ownership with clear titles has an influence on incorporating perennial tree flora. Hence, this study compares the types and density of tree species in homegardens of inherited and settled lands in close proximity of Anuradhapura city, with subsistence farming activities. Mean harvestable tree density was trees/ac in inherited lands compared to .

      The home vegetation features in urban landscapes play an important role as indicators of urban biodiversity potential. They are also ornamental resources in the context of landscape appreciation for the human environment. This study gives information about existing plant species that have already been determined and evaluated according to plant characteristics (aesthetic & visual, functional. Tropical homegardens are traditional agroforestry systems with complex structure and multiple functions. These multi-species production systems are regarded as the model systems for designing sustainable agroecosystems. However, with the advent of market economy, mixed species tropical homegardens are being transformed into single species dominant homegardens.

An analysis of the structural and functional aspects of ten selected homegarden systems from different ecological and geographical regions shows that the average size of the homegarden units is less than 05 ha; yet they are composed of a large number of woody and herbaceous species, carefully structured to form 3–5 vertical canopy strata, with each component having a specific place, as well as by: Structure and function of tropical homegardens STRUCTURE OF HOMEGARDENS In spite of the very small average size of the management units, homegardens are characterized by a high species diversity and usually vertical canopy strata (Table 2), thus indicating the intimacy of plant associations.

Structure and function of tropical homegardens HOMEGARDENS AS AN AGROFORESTRY SYSTEM The definition of agroforestry as adopted by ICRAF, and now being almost unanimously accepted, is as follows: Agroforestry is a collective name for land-use systems and technolo- gies where woody perennials are deliberately used on the same land-management units as Cited by: The book contains some very detailed studies of homegardens from different continents.

These agroforestry systems, developed and nurtured by farmers through generations of innovation and experiment, are often cited as the epitome of sustainability, yet.

It is also likely that similar patterns of domestication have happened for other plant species in Homegardens around the world, especially in those with long history as in South and Southeast Asia (Wiersum, ).

The annotated bibliography and evaluation of homegarden literature by Brownrigg () illustrates the diversity, complexity, and value of homegardens; but it concludes with a call for research on removing the ambiguity surrounding the homegardens as a development tool (Nair ). Homegarden agroforestry system mostly constitutes complex multi-strata than other agroforestry systems.
