From Schulze & Kunz (1995). current avocado areas will remain favourable; some will become unsuitable, though a larger area further west will become suitable. Evidently some farmers will have to change the crops they grow. Changing to a new variety of the same species may be satisfactory for some crops. The response of wheat to higher temperatures (see earlier) indicates that farmers in a particular area will need different varieties which can maintain their canopy long enough in the warmer climate.
All of them are renewable: in other words, they do not involve depleting a finite resource. Burning biomass (whichin practice means plants or plant products) does, of course, produce CO,. However, it is returning CO, that was taken from the air by the plant a few years or a few decades ago, so, on that timescale it is not contributing to CO, increase. Until a few hundred years ago plants, especially wood, provided most of the fuel for people throughout the world; in addition, a little energy was provided by animals, wind and water.
Techniques for studying living things and climate of the past 100 000 years. Distribution of animals and plants The past distribution of vertebrate animals is indicated by bones and of arthropods by exoskeletons. Macroscopic remains of plants that can provide inforniation are seeds, leaves and wood. Pollen grains have the advantage of very large numbers, allowing quantitative assessment of changes in abundance, but the disadvantage that they can be widely dispersed, hence the area of catchment is not well defined.
