This chapter discusses the role circa situm (farmer-based conservation) approaches play in conserving valuable tree species in dry forest agro-ecosystems in Mesoamerica. These approaches have been used to distinguish the very different circumstances of conservation within altered agricultural landscapes outside natural habitats but within a species' native geographical range. The chapter also considers the conditions and for what species circa situm approaches will prove effective and how it might be implemented.

Keywords:   circa situm, farmer-based conservation, agro-ecosystems, Mesoamerica, agricultural landscapes
