It is widely recognized that actions aimed at conserving, restoring and sustainably manage nature will not only help address biodiversity loss and deterioration of ecosystems but also contribute to climate change mitigation, resilience and adaptation.
To understand and forecast biological responses to climate change, scientists frequently use field
Drought‐tolerant plants are increasingly recognized as a resource to mitigate the consequences
of climate change. Succulent plants use stored water to sustain metabolism
A major challenge in articulating human dimensions of climate change lies in translating global climate forecasts into impact assessments that are intuitive to the public.
Sunflower is a unique model species for assessing crop responses and adaptation to climate change. We provide an initial assessment of how climate change may influence the abiotic and biotic environment of cultivated sunflower across the world.
The future of the Earth and its inhabitants has never been more uncertain, but there
is still time for us to prevent further catastrophe. Plant scientists have a crucial role
They don’t make the headlines the way charismatic animals such as rhinos and elephants do. But there are thousands of critically endangered plants in the world, and a determined group of botanists are ready to go to great lengths to save them.
Temperature is universally important for organisms and the thermal environment of a diversity of organisms is changing rapidly because of global climate change.
Botanic gardens are organized around plant collections, and climate change will affect those collections.
Universities are beginning to grapple with the complexities of teaching sustainable development, but traditional institutional structures and limited resources can make it hard for them to offer programs that combine all these aspects.
