Climate Change and Crop Production: Foundations for Agroecosystem Resilience

Overview: From the perspective of agroecology, this book provides a strong foundation for changing research and education programs so that they think and act beyond maximization of yields and instead build both the resistance and resilience that will be needed for the uncertain climate future ahead. Ultimately, these programs will help us move beyond the farm and reach all parts of the food system, creating the multiple elements of resilience we need for change to occur.
