biology - systems - measurement - scaling - indicators - hydrology - water balance - soil - nitrogen - farming systems - geostatistics - hydrological cycle - agroecosystems

Agronomic research must switch from a reductionistic to a more holistic approach. Agro-ecosystem analysis at multiple hierarchical levels, the subject of this thesis, is such an approach. In the first chapter, several issues related to this subject are introduced: agro-ecosystem analysis; hierarchival levels; scaling and spatial up-scaling in agronomy. In the subsequent chapter examples are presented, that deal with agro-ecosytem analysis at hierarchival levels varying from plant to watershed
