Description

This paper studies climate change impacts on wine production, and how this industry’s adaptation efforts may result in additional conservation issues. The results find that winegrape suitability is generally projected to decline, and move into underdeveloped areas that are important habitats for native species. In order to continue wine production in current vineyards, the paper suggests incorporating non-water intensive strategies, such as vine orientations, and trellising, to adapt to the changing climate.
