The project focuses on early detection of airborne pathogens in crops, which contributes to a risk-based approach to plant biosecurity.
Climate change models predict that average UK temperatures will increase by up to 5 degrees celsius by the 2080s, that winters will be wetter and summers drier and that intense rain events will be more frequent (UKCIP200...

The project assesses the potential impacts of climate change on the risks of pathogens and contaminants of agricultural origin on human health, which is related to animal and plant biosecurity.
This project aims to use image and climatic data, collected by global satellites, to help improve estimates where pests and diseases of agriculture may spread. Changing climates mean that more areas globally are becoming...
