Climate Change and the Future of Agriculture

Monday, August 7, 9:00 – 11:30 am

Amanda Pereira De Souza

Our rapidly changing climate poses a serious threat to humanity, presenting worldwide challenges to our ability to produce and distribute food. Plant biologists can help address these challenges by developing more climate resilient crops and more sustainable agricultural practices. Success will depend upon coordinated efforts between academics, companies, and governmental agencies as well as across scientific disciplines. In this symposium, scientists with expertise in climate change, photosynthesis, science administration, and industry policy will present their perspectives on the future of agriculture in the face of a changing climate.
