Climate change and Agriculture are interrelated processes, both of which take place on a global scale. Global warming is projected to have significant impacts on conditions affecting agriculture, including temperature, precipitation and glacial run-off. These conditions determine the carrying capacity of the biosphere to produce enough food for the human Population and domesticated animals. Rising Carbon dioxide levels would also have effects, both detrimental and beneficial, on Crop yields. The overall effect of climate change on agriculture will depend on the Balance of these effects. The present book discusses relation between climate change and Agricultural production. It discusses the contribution of agriculture to greenhouse gas emissions and the impact of global climate change on agriculture. It also examines such important issues as global food availability, food distributional effects, agricultural adaptation possibilities, and role of CO2 enrichment in agriculture. It is hoped that the Insight and the erudition of the text serves well for all those concerned. Printed Pages: 244. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 35131

Buchbeschreibung Springer, 2012. Hardcover. Buchzustand: gut. 2012. The rapid population growth and the increase in the per capita income, especially in the group of emerging countries referred to as BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) has created huge pressure for the expansion of the agricultural growing area and the crop yields to meet the rising demand. As a result, many areas that have been considered marginal for growing crops, due to their low fertility, drought, salinity, and many other abiotic stresses, have now been incorporated in the production system. Additionally, climate change has brought new challenges to agriculture to produce food, feed, fiber and biofuels. To cope with these new challenges, many plant breeding programs have reoriented their breeding scope to stress tolerance in the last years. The authors of this book have collected the most recent advances and discoveries applied to breeding for abiotic stresses in this book, starting with new physiological concepts and breeding methods, and moving on to discuss modern molecular biological approaches geared to the development of improved cultivars tolerant to most sorts of abiotic stress. Written in an easy to understand style, this book is an excellent reference work for students, scientists and farmers interested in learning how to breed for abiotic stresses scenarios, presenting the state-of-the-art in plant stresses and allowing the reader to develop a greater understanding of the basic mechanisms of tolerance to abiotic stresses and how to breed for them. Plant Breeding for Abiotic Stress Tolerance [Englisch] [Gebundene Ausgabe] Roberto Fritsche-Neto (Herausgeber), Aluízio Borém (Herausgeber) In englischer Sprache. 196 pages. 1,5 x 15,3 x 23 cm.
