CABI Book Info
Cover for Climate change and crop production.

This book comprehensively addresses the impact of climate change on crop productivity and approaches to adapt to both biotic and abiotic stresses as well as approaches to reduce greenhouse gases. The predictions of climate change and its impact on crop productivity, adaptation to biotic and abiotic ...

Cover for Breeding for adaptation to heat and drought stress.

Crops respond similarly to drought and heat stress: life cycle is accelerated reducing photosynthetic capacity via restricted leaf area and duration. Metabolism is inhibited at temperature and water potential ranges outside those optimal for growth. Reproductive processes are impaired when stress...

Cover for Biotechnology in agriculture.

Climate change is predicted to result in disruption of many farming systems. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) predicts a 15-20% fall in global agricultural production by 2080. Consequently, adaptation of major crop species to climate change will be the biggest challenge for plant...

Cover for Economic impacts of climate change on agriculture to 2030.

The global food economy is vast and technologically advanced, but none the less prone to substantial negative outcomes in poor weather years. The economic gains or losses associated with climate change will depend on the pace of climate change, the response of cropping systems - including the vast...

Cover for Management of resident soil microbial community structure and function to suppress soilborne disease development.

Climate change is likely to alter the distribution and severity of soilborne diseases affecting both intensive and low-input agricultural production systems. Naturally occurring disease suppressive soils have been documented in a variety of cropping systems, and in many instances the biological...

Cover for Statistical models for studying and understanding genotype × environment interaction in an era of climate change and increased genetic information.

Annual crop production will be greatly affected by increases in mean temperature and climate change, which will be likely to reduce agricultural production and decrease food availability. Plant breeding will play an important role in developing more sustainable lines and varieties for less...

Cover for GIS and crop simulation modelling applications in climate change research.

The challenges that climate change presents to humanity require an unprecedented ability to predict the responses of crops to environment and management. Geographic information systems (GIS) and crop simulation models are two powerful and highly complementary tools that are increasingly used for...
