The outcomes of the Institute contribute to participant Raquel Ghini’s publication:

Mudanças Climáticas Globais e Doenças de Plantas

Anthropogenic activities are changing the concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, leading to changes in the planet’s climate. These climatic changes can alter the current scenario of the phytosanitary problems of Brazilian agriculture. Changes of relative importance, of pests and diseases of major crops, can appear in a few decades. The resulting economic, social and environmental impacts can be positive, negative or neutral, as climate change may decrease, increase or not have any effect on the different phytosanitary problems in each region.

The book “Mudanças climáticas globais e doenças de plantas (Global climate change and plant diseases)” discusses this problem and presents a review other works done on this topic.
