Science - Environment & Ecology / biodiversity
Portuguese term or phrase: agro-silvo-pastoris
"Os sistemas agro-silvo-pastoris mediterránicos (sic) apresentam uma biodiversidade importante:................."

pastoris - is the plural of 'pastoral', sure.

The translation is something very similar to
"agro-forest-pastoral", but I'd just like to make sure and verify with peer agrees etc, if this is indeed the spot on term.

Thanks a lot and have a fine weekend all :)

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks Fernando. Would you say 'agro-SILVO-pastoral' then, as opposed to 'agro-FOREST-pastoral' ? Just making sure, sure, sure, sure... :)
