The linking of climate projections and insect pest models is an important step for determining effective management and counter-measures. There is an urgent need to link pest models and climate change projections for a better understanding of the outcomes of climate change-inflicted variations in...

Biochar has consistently been proposed for improving soil fertility by increasing nutrient and soil water availability. We critically reviewed the recent literature, focussing particularly on these agronomic aspects. We clarify the differences between biochar made from plant (plant-derived biochar, ...

Urban areas are particularly susceptible to climate change. For instance, effects of increasing temperatures on public health and energy demands for cooling of buildings are further intensified by the urban heat island effect, and the current sewer infrastructure is not designed to handle predicted ...

Climate change, expanding regional populations, changes in consumer preferences and improved technology will influence wheat breeding objectives in the coming decades. Traits that improve productivity in drier, warmer conditions are likely to become increasingly important and wheat cultivars with...

Climate change is one of the main drivers impacting biodiversity. The spatial and temporal distribution of temperature and precipitation as well as the increasing CO2 concentration of the atmosphere are the main drivers substantially modifying the competitive success of species. Most information...

The suitability of temperate forage legumes for adverse physical conditions is considered. The ability of the major forage legumes i.e. lucerne, white and red clover and birdsfoot trefoil and the 'minor' species, many originating from Mediterranean-type climatic zones, to withstand soil acidity,...
