Climate change is the biggest challenge agriculture faces. Part 1 of this collection reviews current research on the impacts of climate change on agriculture, such as the effects of increased temperatures, as well as the ways these impacts can be modelled. Part 2 assesses what we know about the contribution of agriculture to climate change, including the impacts of both crop and livestock production as well as land use. Part 3 surveys mitigation strategies to achieve a more 'climate-smart' agriculture such as the role of integrated crop-livestock and agroforestry systems.

Dr Delphine Deryng is a Senior Research Associate at the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) and at the Integrative Research Institute on Transformations of Human-Environment Systems (IRI THESys) at Humboldt-University of Berlin, Germany. She has written widely on climate change impacts on agriculture and is a lead author to the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working Group II Chapter 5: "Food, fibre, and other ecosystem products". Prior to joining ZALF and IRI THESys, Dr Deryng worked as a Scientific Advisor at Climate Analytics, a policy and science institute focusing on climate change issues in the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS). Prior to moving to Germany, Dr. Deryng held research positions at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, jointly with Columbia University's Earth Institute and the University of Chicago's Computation Institute, and before that at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change & the Environment and the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research in the UK. She holds a PhD in Environmental Science from the University of East Anglia in Norwich (UK) and a Masters in Geography from McGill University (Canada). Dr. Deryng is the main developer of the global crop model PEGASUS and a member of the Agricultural Modelling Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP).

It has been suggested that agriculture may account for up to 24% of the greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) contributing to climate change. At the same time climate change is threatening to disrupt agricultural production. This collection reviews key research addressing this challenge.

Part 1 of the book reviews current research on the impacts of climate change on agriculture, such as the effects of increased temperatures, as well as the ways these impacts can be modelled. Part 2 assesses what we know about the contribution of agriculture to climate change, including the impacts of both crop and livestock production as well as land use. Part 3 surveys mitigation strategies to achieve a more 'climate-smart' agriculture such as the role of integrated crop-livestock and agroforestry systems.

With its distinguished editor and international array of expert authors, Climate change and agriculture will be a standard reference on how to understand and address the biggest challenge agriculture faces.
