Adapting cropping patterns to climate change
MetadataShow full item record
White, Jeffrey W.
The potential impacts of climate change on cropping patterns are highly researchable but present significant methodological challenges. Climate-change impacts are not simply a question of increased or decreased productivity. The impacts may have dramatic effects on land use as well as cropping practices in a given region. Ecological niche modeling and crop-simulation modeling are powerful, complementary tools for examining the spatial and temporal aspects of climate-change impacts. Their successful application, however, requires effective interdisciplinary collaboration, including participation from plant biology
