The first in the groundbreaking Advances in Agricultural Systems Modeling series, Response of Crops to Limited Water: Understanding and Modeling Water Stress Effects on Plant Growth Processes compiles the work of world experts, systematically presenting recent knowledge of water stress effects, and emphasizing the knowledge synthesis that will move agriculture forward. Agriculture today requires a whole-system quantitative approach, and farmers need simple management tools derived from robust models. Learn how modeling is addressing crop management in the face of competing water demands, depleted aquifers, drought, and changing plant water requirements due to global warming. Advances in Agricultural Systems Modeling Transdisciplinary Research, Synthesis, and Applications Laj Ahuja, Series Editor The American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America are taking a leadership role with the initiation of this new series.The series will -Advance critical transdisciplinary research, and its synthesis and quantification -Encourage collaboration among top researchers -Promote the application of models to solve practical problems -Achieve better instruction in models and their applications
