Future crop production threatened by extreme heat

What is it about?

- Commentary on the article: Deryng, D., Conway, D., Ramankutty, N., Price, J. and Warren, R., 2014. Global crop yield response to extreme heat stress under multiple climate change futures. Environmental Research Letters, 9, 034011. - Describing effects of extreme heat stress on crop yields, the impact of climate change on effects of heat stress and possible adaptation measures. - Highlighting current uncertainties and knowledge gaps.

Why is it important?

- Short own perspective on this emerging field of research, - Maybe a good introduction and starting point for more detailed studies
