About this book

Presenting a global perspective of climate change effects on agricultural production, this volume considers the consequences of changes in the atmosphere and climate for the integrity, stability, and productivity of agroecosystems. It melds together theoretical contributions from ecologists and the applied perspective of agriculturalists. This book provides a theoretical underpinning to guide agricultural scientists on what phenomena to look for, and to move beyond first-order responses in the creation of sustainable agroecosystems. It also discusses issues such as how population biology of different trophic levels might be altered due to climate-change impacts.


Introduction. Resource Supply and Demand and Climate Change. Pests, Weeds and Diseases and Climate Change. Capacity to Adapt to Climate Change.
