Combining a Climatic Niche Model of an Invasive Fungus with Its Host Species Distributions to Identify Risks to Natural Assets: Puccinia psidii Sensu Lato in Australia

Publication Date: May, 2013

We used CLIMEX to develop a semi-mechanistic global climatic niche model based on new data on the distribution and biology of P. psidii s.l. The model was validated using independent distribution data from recently invaded areas in Australia, China and Japan. We combined this model with distribution data of its potential Myrtaceae host plant species present in Australia to identify areas and ecosystems most at risk.

The Impact of Global Warming on Chinese Wheat Productivity

Publication Date: January, 2008

In this paper, we use crop-specific panel data to investigate the climate contribution to Chinese wheat-yield growth. We find that global warming has a significantly negative impact on wheat yields in China, but the magnitude of impact is less than that reported by previous studies in other regions.

Reforming the Agricultural Research and Intellectual Property Rights Systems of China

Publication Date: January, 2007

We begin by providing a profile of the agricultural research system in China, focusing on its reforms beginning in the 1980s, the consequent emergence of nongovernmental funding institutions engaged in agricultural R&D, and their relevance to IPR protection.
