Climate Change and Agricultural Ecosystems: Current Challenges and Adaptation explains the causative factors of climate change related to agriculture, soil and plants, also discussing the relevant resulting mitigation process. This book summarizes the different aspects of vulnerability, adaptation and amelioration of climate change in respect to plants, crops, soil and microbes for the sustainability of the agricultural sector and, ultimately, food security for the future. It also focuses on the utilization of information technology for the sustainability of the agricultural sector, along with the capacity and adaptability of agricultural societies under climate change.
Changes in climatic conditions influence all factors of agricultural ecosystems which can adversely affect productivity. To fully understand the impact of climate change, attention must be focused on these unexplored causative agents and mitigating factors.

  • Covers the impact of climate change on agricultural ecosystems, including vulnerability, adaptation and mitigation for sustainable agriculture
  • Focuses on issues relating to plant systems, agriculture and microbes
  • Explores the effects of greenhouse gases on plant metabolites, soil respiration and microbial biomass
