CCSP Report on the Effects of Climate Change on Agriculture and Biodiversity

May 30, 2008

A new report on the Effect of Climate Change on Agriculture, Land Resources, Water Resources and Biodiversity in the United States was released recently by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Climate Change Science Program (CCSP). The report, written by 38 authors from universities, national laboratories, non-governmental organizations and federal service is one of the most extensive examinations of climate impacts on U.S. Ecosystems. "The report provides practical information that will help land owners and resource managers make better decisions to address the risks of climate change," said Agriculture Chief Economist Joe Glauber.
