Science News
Nov 8, 2003 by K. Ramsayer
Sunny southern Florida seems like a perfect place to grow fruits and vegetables, even in the winter. But the 20th-century transformation of what had been wetlands into croplands might have had unintended consequences. The shift has made the area more susceptible to crop-damaging freezes, researchers suspect. In the early 1900s, much of Florida's citrus industry moved south to areas of the state that seemed the least prone to ruinous freezes. To make room for orchards and farms, people drained wetlands and diverted rivers, actions that affected the local climate, say Roger A. Pielke Sr. and Curtis H. Marshall of Colorado State University in Fort Collins and Louis T. Steyaert of the U.S. Geological Survey in Greenbelt, Md. The scientists mathematically reconstructed south Florida's pre-1900 plant cover and mapped the area's current vegetation. By plugging these data into a weather-modeling program that Pielke and another colleague developed, he and Marshall could predict the temperatures before and after the draining of the wetlands.

Custodians of Change: Report of Agriculture and Environment Working Group
1. Setting the Scene
The Purpose of This Report A Forward Strategy for Scottish Agriculture launched on 26th June 2001. Action 41 (page 32 of the Strategy) announces that "A small Working Group made up of environmental and farming interests will be set up to examine the environmental issues which will impact on farming and food processing businesses over the next 5-10 years and to advise on how best to tackle them. This Group will take evidence from interested organisations and will be supported by the Executive. It will report within 6 months of being set up". There is an associated action point (Action 42) which states "As part of its remit, the Working Group will be asked to review existing advice and recommend how we can ensure simple, consistent advice which offers, wherever possible, cost-effective solutions which can be implemented by farmers themselves." Terms of Reference were to:
  • Examine the environmental issues which will impact on farming and food processing businesses over the next 5 to 10 years.
