New research by a Stanford team shows that climate change is expanding the amount of U.S. agricultural land that is suitable for harvesting two crops per growing season, a system known as double cropping. The practice offers higher productivity and more income for American farmers, but future yield losses from climate change may still outstrip the gains from double cropping.
A new study by Roz Naylor and postdoctoral scholar Ling Cao offers the clearest picture to date of China’s enormous impact on wild fisheries. The study also presents a more sustainable alternative to the current practice of using wild-caught fish to feed farm-raised fish.
Earth Systems alumnus Dan Karp is the co-lead author of a new study in Costa Rica that revealed that habitat destruction significantly reduces the incidence of evolutionarily distinct species.
Peter Vitousek and colleagues in China have shown in a new Nature study that Chinese farming practices could be designed to simultaneously improve yields and substantially reduce environmental damages.
