- ... The study addresses the biophysical dimension of adaptation. It illustrates and applies a framework to evaluate options for adaptation by identifying cultivars optimally adapted to expected climate conditions, building on existing crops intra-specific biodiversity. The aim is to reduce the vulnerability of current production systems without altering the pattern of current species and cultivation s ...

- ... Organic farming systems present unique challenges that include limitations in available soil nutrients and interference from weeds. They are also vulnerable to environmental fluctuations resulting from climate change. The generation of adapted cultivars with the capacity to evolve under changing conditions may help to meet these challenges. Previous work by our research group demonstrated that dir ...
