The volume, Climate Change in the Midwest: Impacts, Risks, Vulnerability, and Adaptation (edited by S. C. Pryor), includes contributions from Purdue'sDoug Gotham and Dev Niyogi.
Key sectors discussed are agriculture, human health, water, energy and infrastructure, and the vulnerabilities that may be amplified under current climate trajectories.
