Journal of Crop Improvement: Vol. 26, No. 3, pp. We review the impacts and implications of climate change for the management and use of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture and associated biodiversity (PGRFA-AB). Climate change is predicted to bring about increased temperatures across the.

Plants are well known to possess extensive genetic variation in drought and temperature tolerance, water-use efficiency, and other traits that can prove critical for surviving climate.

Plant genetic resources are essential for farmers to cope with future challenges, a feature emphasized by the FAO Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture.

New within-crop diversity will be needed to adapt to future conditions, and even new crops will be required under extreme conditions to reduce risks induced by climate change. History. The first use of plant genetic resources dates to more t years ago, when farmers selected from the genetic variation they found in wild plants to develop their crops.

As human populations moved to different climates and ecosystems, taking the crops with them, the crops adapted to the new environments, developing, for example, genetic traits providing tolerance to conditions.

Climate change is now unequivocal, particularly in terms of increasing temperature, increasing CO2 concentration, widespread melting of snow and ice and rising global average sea level, while the. Tackling Climate Change through Plant Breeding and Better Use of Plant Genetic Resources Climate change is threatening to push the number of hungry even higher in the decades to come, due to new challenges to agriculture and food production.

Temperatures across the. Improving the policy framework for developing climate change agricultural systems: the role of plant genetic resources” was the title of a CARDI/CTA Workshop held on October during the Caribbean Week of Agriculture (CWA) in Antigua and Barbuda. Scientists, from throughout the Caribbean and also from the Pacific, U.K and Colombia, considered the current situations with climate change and plant.

The Earth has experienced a constantly changing climate in the time since plants first evolved. In comparison to the present day, this history has seen Earth as cooler, warmer, drier and wetter, and CO 2 (carbon dioxide) concentrations have been both higher and lower.

These changes have been reflected by constantly shifting vegetation, for example forest communities dominating most areas in. Genetics May Hold the Key to Climate Change Solutions for Plants.

This book aims to raise awareness of the important roles of genetic resources for food and agriculture in coping with climate change and to contribute to the mainstreaming of genetic resources for food and agriculture into climate change adaptation and mitigation planning at national and international levels.

19 JanuaryRome - Genetic resources have a critical role to play in feeding the world — especially as climate change advances faster than expected — and much more needs to be done to study, preserve and utilize the biological diversity that underpins world food production, according to a new book released by FAO today.
