Agrobiodiversity Management for Climate Change

April 27th, 2011

This article by R. Ortiz is an extraction from the book “Agrobiodiversity Management for Food Security”, edited by J. M. Lenné and D Wood and published by CABI.

This chapter addresses the important issue of agrobiodiversity management for climate change. It considers climate change impacts on agrobiodiversity and food security; the neglect of agrobiodiversity by the Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change; coping with climate change through knowledge-based agricultural research; and on-going research to adapt and mitigate climate change impacts in major staple food crops such as wheat, rice and maize as well as other important food crops. It highlights the need for improved public awareness of the important role that agrobiodiversity can play in dealing with climate change.
