2. 4 Adoption of ASP Systems 3. Conclusions References 1. INTRODUCTION The role of animals in tropical farming systems is controversial: they have been considered both to be essential components of a sustainable farming system and to be the cause of deforestation of the rain forests, encroachment of the Sahara and other types of environmental degradation. While there is no question that animals that are poorly managed or that are maintained in fragile ecosystems can cause environmental damage, such degradation is not a necessary by-product of livestock production.
