If you are interested in all the different plants and trees used in agroforestry system the Agroforestry Species Switchboard is a great resource. The webpage is provided by The World Agroforestry Centre and compiles information from a number of credible sources. The database has recently been expanded and an astonishing 24,000 plant species are presented with information on biology, value, ecology and other useful aspects. The database can favourably be used by both practitioners and researchers.

Agroforestry Network encourages the curios to take a look at the database. But be aware, it is easy to get stuck longer than intended among all the information.
