Study as of 04/22/2009

I happened to see this site from stanford: Food Security and the Environment program at Stanford. On there, I found a 'science' paper talking about adaptation for food security:

Prioritizing Climate Change Adaptation Needs for Food Security in 2030

This guys wrote another paper on how to project crop yield impact of climate change (precipitation and temperature) using linear regression methods:

Towards probabilistic projections of climate change impacts on global crop yields

In this paper, he explained how to create his statistical model by processing spatial distribution of cropland and crop yield data globally. The data is from this paper:

Farming the planet: 2. Geographic distribution of crop areas, yields, physiological types, and net primary production in the year 2000

In the data paper, they created 10Km resolution map for a set of crops globally using satellite remote sensing data.
