Natural system management that favors one or a group of plant species for the benefit of humankind is one of the main factors promoting landscape change. However, depending on the focal species, management practices can promote plant diversity and contribute to the subsistence of local human populations. In this study, we identify and describe three management systems (conserved forest [CF], shade-grown coffee plantation [SGC], and enriched forest [EF]) associated with the edible fruit… CONTINUE READING
