Abstract

Agroforestry backyards are biodiverse, have social, environmental, cultural, economic and climate-regulating functions. These systems may involve consortia with agricultural, forestry and/or animal species in the same area. The main objective of the research was to diagnose, in a preliminary manner, the current state of the flora and the strata of an agroforestry yard in the community of Caruaru, Mosqueiro, Belém-PA. The research is of the quantitative, qualitative, exploratory and descriptive type, and was conducted in November 2022, in two field visits.  We found 42 species: food uses (n = 28.0; 67%%) with the majority occupying the upper stratum (n = 22.0; 52.3%); medicinal uses (n = 8.0; 19.0%), most frequently in the lower stratum (n = 5.0; 62.5%), and ornamental uses (n = 6.0; 14.0%), where the majority occupy the lower stratum (n = 5.0; 83.3%). Moreover, it can positively influence the conservation of local biodiversity and sustainability, as well as assisting in the maintenance of the traditional knowledge of that community, as to the use and occupation of the land.
