Global Warming is Pushing Wine Harvests Earlier - But Not Necessarily For the Better | SciTech Connect

Global Warming is Pushing Wine Harvests Earlier - But Not Necessarily For the Better | SciTech Connect | Erba Volant - Applied Plant Science | Scoop.it
Analysis showed that wine harvests are happening earlier, which has historically been a harbinger of high-quality wines. But changing local weather conditions could make it harder to determine when to expect high-quality wines, and that higher temperatures could force wine growers to use different grape varieties.

Scientists say many plants don't respond to warming as thought | Science Codex | Erba Volant - Applied Plant Science | Scoop.it
Plants, like people, breathe, and when it gets hotter, they breathe harder. One product of respiration is the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. Thus, researchers predict that as the planet is warmed by human-produced CO2, plants may add to the emissions,

Global warming won't stop this invasive plant

Global warming won't stop this invasive plant | Erba Volant - Applied Plant Science | Scoop.it
With its enormous green and purple leaves, the South American miconia tree is invading botanic gardens all around the world on account of its beauty. This plant, however, is called the 'green cancer' for its ability to infest new territories. A new study that has identified 91 countries which are at risk for being colonised by this plant warns that the plant's expansion in infested areas will not be negatively affected by a rise in temperatures. Native to the rainforest stretching from southern Mexico to northern Argentina, the miconia (Miconia calvescens) tree is one of the world's 100 most invasive species.
