A study co-authored by Brown University researchers is cited in an article about how climate change will affect crop yields in parts of Africa in the next century. Research in the separate study suggests that scientists have overlooked two important human responses to climate that will impact food production in the future. "If you look at yields alone, you're not looking at all of the information because there are economic and social changes going on as well," said Leah VanWey, professor of sociology and one of the study's senior authors. "You're not taking into account farmers' reactions to climate shocks."
