This volume synthesizes two decades of KBS LTER research on the ecology of row-crop ecosystems of the U.S Midwest. Fifteen chapters provide overviews of the many components of agricultural ecosystems and landscapes that intersect to provide a rich variety of ecosystem services in addition to agronomic yield. Understanding these components is key to designing future production systems that meet society’s needs for abundant food and a clean environment.
