Burleigh Dodds Science Publishing is  a new “climate smart” publisher. We are building a database of review chapters, each written by a leading expert, which systematically covers the major crop varieties and, at the same time, each step in the value chain for their production, from breeding through to harvest.  Our titles focus on the need for a more ‘climate smart’ agriculture which is able to improve yields more sustainably; the need for a holistic approach in achieving this goal, taking in improvements in both breeding and cultivation practices, and the particular need to support both large producers in major crop producing countries and smallholders in the developing world. We hope the reviews of research in each chapter will help researchers plan and coordinate future research projects more effectively. You can read more about specific titles at www.bdspublishing.com.
