Disconnect within Agriculture and Ecosystem Climate Effects, Adaptations and Policy
Frequently, agriculture and ecosystems (AE) are seen as separate entities, causing entity specific solutions in response to threats. Anthropogenic climate change simultaneously stresses both agriculture and ecosystems along with their interactions. Induced increasing surface temperatures, altered precipitation, drought intensification, altered ground and surface water quantity/quality, and diminished soil moisture force adaptations for AE, but these adaptations fail to be efficient when interdependencies are not considered. Additional adaptations will be necessary, as future projections anticipate even greater climate change.
