ABSTRACT
The article reports that extreme weather conditions in the early months of 2010 have destroyed fruit and vegetable crops in various parts of the U.S. Gary Lucier, agricultural economist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) said the most affected crops are tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers. Three restaurant operators, Bill Fuller of Mad Mex, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Nic Jammet of Sweetgreen, Washington, D.C. and Geno Bernardo of Nove Italiano, Las Vegas, Nevada share their strategies for working the produce supply chain.

    The climate and vegetation patterns of the middle Holocene (6000 years ago; 6 ka) over Northern Africa are simulated using a fully-synchronous climate and dynamical vegetation model. The coupled model predicts a northward shift in tropical rainforest and tropical deciduous forest vegetation by...

    Studying the large-scale relationships between climate and agriculture raises two different issues: the impact of climate on crops, and the potential feedbacks to climate from croplands. A relevant and consistent framework to address this twofold issue is to extend existing Dynamic Global...

    Populations of European wild rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) have been decreasing since the 1950s. Changes in agricultural practices have been suggested as reasons for their decline in Mediterranean landscapes. We evaluated the environmental variables affecting rabbit distribution in a semiarid...

    Green plants play an important role in energy flows and material cycles. The net primary productivity (NPP) reflects the capability of vegetation to convert solar energy into photosynthate (fixed carbon). Understanding the factors that contribute to variations in NPP is of key importance for...
