With the Global Climate Action Summit occurring this week in San Francisco, it’s time for an update on UC Davis’ broad expertise in climate change.
What Can I Do About Climate Change?
UC Davis has launched a new blog featured on its Science & Climate website called “What Can I Do About Climate Change?” centered on actions, big and small, individuals can take in their lives to address climate change.
“What Can I Do About Climate Change?” is geared to individuals and how we can all make a difference, including topics such as telecommuting, fire control, food waste, and bicycling. Topics will continue to be added, including plant-focused actions.
Science & Climate Website
The main Science & Climate website covers Science, Impacts, and Solutions.
Some of the articles that pertain to plant sciences include:
- Native wildflowers bank on seeds underground to endure drought
- Earth’s oldest trees in climate-induced race up the tree line
- How much drought can a forest take?
- High-severity wildfires complicate natural regeneration for California conifers
- Bringing more irrigation and climate-smart farming to Guatemala
Climate Change Experts
A new campus listing with a Climate Change Experts List includes these categories:
- Wildfire, smoke and air quality
- Energy and transportation
- Agriculture in a changing climate
- Wildlife, conservation and infectious diseases
- Climate change and community resilience
Experts from Plant Sciences include Arnold Bloom, Kent Bradford, Charlie Brummer, Mary Cadenasso, Amelie Gaudin, Andrew Latimer, Malcolm North, Leslie Roche, Ken Tate, and Gail Taylor.
