  • Climate Change and Global Food Securityby Rattan Lal; Norman Uphoff; Bobby A. Stewart; David O. Hansen

    CRC Press 2005; US$ 220.00

    In order to feed their burgeoning populations, developing nations will need to double cereal production by the year 2050. This increase will have to come from existing land, as little potential exists for bringing new land under cultivation -- a daunting prospect when one realizes that increased use and significantly higher concentrations of carbon... more...

  • Desiccation and Survival in Plantsby M. Black; H.W. Pritchard

    CABI 2002; US$ 155.00

    This book is divided into three sections, dealing with: the technical background to desiccation tolerance studies; the frequency and levels of dehydration stress tolerance in biological systems; mechanisms of damage and tolerance. more...

  • Climate Change and Global Crop Productivityby K.R. Reddy; H.F. Hodges

    CABI 2000; US$ 155.00

    Written by international experts, this book is a comprehensive examination of the potential effects climate change, particularly greenhouses gases, will have on agrosystems. It also reviews the effects such systems have on climate change itself. more...

  • Tomato Plant Cultureby J. Benton Jr. Jones

    CRC Press 2007; US$ 99.95

    While tomatoes continue to be one of the most widely grown plants, the production and distribution of tomato fruits have been changing worldwide. Smaller, flavorful tomatoes are becoming more popular than beefsteak tomatoes, greenhouse-grown tomatoes have entered the marketplace, and home gardeners are using the Internet to obtain information for growing... more...

  • Climate Change in Contrasting River Basinsby J. Aerts; P. Droogers

    CABI 2004; US$ 100.00

    Dealing with climate change is generally considered to be one of the greatest challenges for the coming decades. Changes in precipitation are likely to have a major impact on the hydrological cycle and subsequently on the environment and food production. more...

  • Climate Prediction and Agricultureby Mannava V.K. Sivakumar; James Hansen

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 206.11

    Improved adaptation of food production, particularly in areas where climate variability is large, holds the key to improving food security for human populations. Increasing climate knowledge and improved prediction capabilities facilitate the development of relevant climate information and prediction products for applications in agriculture to reduce... more...

  • Plant Growth and Climate Changeby James I. L. Morison; Michael D. Morecroft

    Wiley 2008; US$ 317.95 US$ 275.56

    Evidence grows daily of the changing climate and its impact on plants and animals. Plant function is inextricably linked to climate and atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration. On the shortest and smallest scales, the climate affects the plant’s immediate environment and so directly influences physiological processes. At larger scales, the climate... more...

  • Managing Weather and Climate Risks in Agricultureby Mannava V.K. Sivakumar; Raymond P. Motha

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 226.73

    Based on an International Workshop held in New Delhi, India, this work should be of interest to all organizations and agencies interested in improved risk management in agriculture. In many parts of the world, weather and climate are one of the biggest production risks and uncertainty factors impacting on agricultural systems performance and management.... more...

  • Climate Change and Crop Productionby M.P. Reynolds

    CABI 2010; US$ 160.00

    Trends in population growth suggest that global food production is unlikely to satisfy future demand under predicted climate change scenarios unless rates of crop improvement are accelerated. This book provides an overview of the essential disciplines required for sustainable crop production in unpredictable environments. more...

  • Climate Change and Agricultureby OECD Publishing

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2010; US$ 46.00

    Climate change is likely to have significant impacts on the agricultural sector to which farmers will have to adapt. While agriculture is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, it is also a source of carbon storage in soils. This report examines the economic and policy issues related to the impacts of climate change on agriculture and... more...
