Abstract

Science for drought contains proceedings of the National Drought Forum held in Brisbane in April 2003. Papers deal with: - drought aspects associated with climate variability and climate change - systems research and analysis - systems management and interventions - plant and animal breeding and management for drought. - with additional contributed papers from agricultural scientists working with climate variability. This volume describes the science behind seasonal forecasting with its potential and current limitations. it shows how this information can be used to minimise the effects of drought, and is therefore invaluable to makers of government policy and to managers of natural resources and primary production.
