Plants and Climate Change details how plants and climate change are intimately connected, and explains why it is crucially important for us to act now to save the world's plants.
"Plants form the basis of every major terrestrial ecosystem on our planet, but despite their key importance to all life, we currently have an extremely limited understanding of how they will be affected by climate change" said Belinda Hawkins of BGCI, co-author of Plants and Climate Change. "What we do know is that this new climatic era will have its 'winner' and 'loser' species, and unfortunately many of humankind's most valued crops, medicinal and ornamental plants are likely to fall into the latter category."
Plants and Climate Change provides referenced information and case studies that:
- Examine the effects of climate change on plants (from individual cellular responses to entire ecosystem changes)
- Describe how the impact of climate change on plants will affect the animals and humans who depend upon them
- Explain which species are most at risk of extinction
- Recommend actions needed to ensure a future for the world's plants
