Short Communications: Not all long-distance-exploration types of ectomycorrhizae are the same: differential accumulation of nitrogen and carbon in Scleroderma and Xerocomus in response to variations in soil fertility

Trocha LK, Bulaj B, Durska A, Frankowski M, Mucha JNOT ALL LONG-DISTANCE-EXPLORATION TYPES OF ECTOMYCORRHIZAE ARE THE SAME: DIFFERENTIAL ACCUMULATION OF NITROGEN AND CARBON IN SCLERODERMA AND XEROCOMUS IN RESPONSE TO VARIATIONS IN SOIL FERTILITYAbstract: Long-distance-exploration type (LDET) ectomycorrhizae have been reported to be best adapted to infertile soils, but variation within LDET ectomyc...

Landscape genomics of Quercus lobata reveals genes involved in local climate adaptation at multiple spatial scales

Understanding how the environment shapes genetic variation provides critical insight about the evolution of local adaptation in natural populations. At multiple spatial scales and multiple geographic contexts within a single species, such information could address a number of fundamental questions about the scale of local adaptation and whether or not the same loci are involved at different spatia...

Climate change adaptation: Cost to at least quadruple for developing countries in 3 decades

The annual cost of adaptation to the effects of climate change for developing countries is estimated to at least quadruple by 2050, according to the United Nations Adaptation Gap Report, 2020. The currest cost for these countries is in the range of $70 billion (Rs 5.1 lakh crore), and may rise to $140-300 billion in 2030 and $280-500 billion in 2050, the report published on January 14 said....

‘There is no vaccine for climate change,’ U.N. environment chief says

The world is not prepared for climate change, a new U.N. report warns, highlighting how far behind countries have fallen in implementing adaptation measures. “The hard truth is that climate change is upon us,” Inger Andersen, executive director of the U.N. Environment Programme (UNEP), said at a press briefing Jan. 14. “Its impacts will intensify […]...

Poor nations need more cash to adapt to climate change - U.N.

International finance for adaptation is slowly rising from $30 billion, or 5% of tracked climate funds, annually. But adaptation costs in developing countries are estimated at $70 billion per year, the report said....

Climate Change: Updates on Recent Global and United States Temperature Anomalies and Impacts to Water, Forests, and Environmental Health

Over the past few years, a number of improvements have been made to global surface air temperature datasets and climate models that facilitate increased statistical reliability when determining temperature anomalies and trends. Recent measurements show a continued rise in land surface temperatures, both globally and across the United States. These trends have been increasing since the 1970s with t...

Can long-lived species keep pace with climate change? Evidence of local persistence potential in a widespread conifer

Our findings provide insight into the role of the landscape in shaping population genetic structure in a widespread tree species as well as the potential response of local populations to novel conditions, knowledge critical to understanding how widely distributed species may respond to climate change. Geographically based genetic structure and reduced survival under water-limited conditions may ma...

Identification, mitigation, and adaptation to salinization on working lands in the U.S. Southeast.

Key Messages: • Soil salinization in the coastal Southeastern United States is becoming more prevalent as storm surges increase in frequency,and sea levels rise. • Salinization reduces the productivity of working lands and can prevent crops from growing. • Resources are lacking for landowners to understand coastal salinization and how to manage for resilience. • Action must be taken if the...

How to talk with ranchers about drought and climate resilience: Lessons from knowledge exchange workshops in Montana

This article offers the Extension community a pathway to drought resilience and climate-related conversations through knowledge exchange workshops. In 2017, a "flash drought" affected eastern Montana, and ranchers in the region faced numerous challenges. Moreover, drought-favorable climate conditions are predicted to increase for the region. We held five workshops to facilitate an exchan...

Transformative Adaptation to Climate Change in Southeast Asian Coastal Cities: Entry Points for Jakarta and Ho Chi Minh City, December 2020

This study is part of the UNRISD project "Transformative Adaptation to Climate Change in Southeast Asian Coastal Cities" which explores adaptation decisionmaking processes and barriers to transformative solutions in order to inform more progressive policy making in the context of Southeast Asian coastal cities....
