This study quantified the effects of five Leucaena species (L.(More)
The emergence of energy flow studies is reviewed, from their origins in ecosystem research in the 1950s, to their application to agricultural systems suffering from the 'energy crisis' of the 1970s, and the application of Optimal Foraging Theory to small-scale societies. Methodological problems are then discussed, in particular problems of measuring human(More)
