Current 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. In order to maintain food security in the face of these challenges, a holistic approach that includes stress-tolerant germplasm, sustainable crop and natural resource management, and sound policy interventions will be needed. The first volume in the CABI Climate Change Series, this book provides an overview of the essential disciplines required for sustainable crop production in unpredictable environments. Chapters include discussions of adapting to biotic and abiotic stresses, sustainable and resource-conserving technologies and new tools for enhancing crop adaptation. Examples of successful applications as well as future prospects of how each discipline can be expected to evolve over the next 30 years are also presented. Laying out the basic concepts needed to adapt to and mitigate changes in crop environments, this is an essential resource for researchers and students in crop and environmental science as well as policy makers.

About the Author:

Matthew P. Reynolds is with CIMMYT, Mexico.

Review:

"Is the book recommended reading? Yes, particularly for students and academics in crop science and agronomy....If you are involved with climate change and agriculture, this book must be on your bookshelf as it comprehensively deals with every aspect of crop production under environmental stress. I believe no other book on the subject matches its breadth and depth."--Quarterly Journal of International Agriculture

"Over the whole, this book provides an advanced coverage of wide range of topics related to climate change and agriculture."--D. K. L. MacKerron (01/01/2011)

"In summary, this first book of the CABI series on climate change is a valuable contribution for all those working along the human food chain and will be very helpful for students, teachers and researchers interested in agricultural sciences such as plant breeding and plant cultivation, as well animal and human physiology, nutrition and health. It could also be helpful for politicians, who carry responsibility for human well-being in the near future as well as in the long-term."-- (01/01/2012)
