VIDEO: Withering Crops -- Changing Planet
As the global population continues to increase, scientists and farmers are concerned about the impacts that climate change could have on the world's crops. To better understand the process of photosynthesis and how plants use water and carbon dioxide to thrive, scientists are studying the stress limits of plants.
This helps to understand the effect of climate change on food security and our crop production system.
