multistrata agroforestry systems

An agroforestry system whose components (crops, trees, shrubs, livestock, wildlife, etc.) occupy distinct layers of the vertical structure of the community. An example is the production of coffee intercropped with bananas occupying the lowest strata, shaded by medium-sized fruit trees in the middle vertical strata, with an overstory of tall timber trees in the upper canopy strata.
