Improving rumen function
 
Part 1 summarises advances in analysing the rumen microbiome. Part 2 reviews recent research on different types of rumen microbiota. Part 3 discusses the way the rumen processes nutrients whilst Part 4 explores nutritional strategies to optimise rumen function. 
Climate change and agriculture
 
Climate change is the biggest challenge agriculture faces. Part 1 of this collection reviews current research on the impacts of climate change on agriculture. Part 2 assesses what we know about the contribution of agriculture to climate change, whilst Part 3 surveys mitigation strategies to achieve a more ‘climate-smart’ agriculture. 
Achieving sustainable cultivation of ornamental plants
 
This collection reviews recent research in ornamentals. Part 1 discusses advances in understanding plant physiology, genetic diversity and breeding techniques. Part 2 surveys advances in cultivation techniques in areas such as nutrition, irrigation, protected cultivation and pest management. 
Improving data management and decision support systems in agriculture
 
Part 1 reviews general issues underpinning effective decision support systems (DSS) such as data access, standards, tagging and security. Part 2 contains case studies of the practical application of DSS in areas such as crop planting and nutrition, livestock feed and pasture management as well as supply chains. 
Preventing food losses and waste to achieve food security and sustainability
 
This volume provides a comprehensive review of the causes and prevention of food losses and waste (FLW) at key steps in the supply chain for different commodities and across different regions. 
Biopesticides for sustainable agriculture
With increasing concern about the environmental impact of synthetic pesticide use, this book reviews the wealth of research on identifying, developing, assessing and improving the growing range of biopesticides. 
Achieving sustainable urban agriculture
 
This volume reviews research on building urban and peri-urban agricultural networks, the use of technologies such as rooftop and vertical farming systems, as well as providing case studies of particular products from urban farming. 
Achieving sustainable crop nutrition
 
This collection reviews current research on understanding nutrient cycles, the ways crops process nutrients, the environmental effects of fertilizer use and how this understanding can be used to improve nutrient use efficiency for a more resource-efficient and climate-smart agriculture. 
Achieving carbon-negative bioenergy systems from plant materials
 
This collection reviews advances in producing next-generation biofuels from plant materials. Part 1 discusses technologies such as biomass gasification, fast pyrolysis and torrefaction. Part 2 assesses advances in production of biofuels from crops such as jatropha, oilseeds, Miscanthus, switchgrass and willow. 
Achieving sustainable cultivation of barley
 
This collection reviews advances in understanding barley physiology and genetics, molecular breeding and cultivation techniques, as well as disease and weed management. It also discusses advances in improving barley for end uses such as malting and brewing.

NEW Blog: Is the livestock sector responsible for climate change? Quantifying the impact 
 
Despite the reported contributions of livestock production to climate change, the true impacts of it are difficult to measure. The main reason being that the livestock sector also positively contributes to ecosystem services, as well as the livelihoods and food security of many. 
 
Assessing the impact of total animal biomass 
 
A brief history 
The rearing and keeping of livestock probably contributed to environmental change from the start (9th century BCE), and increasing populations of ruminant livestock between 5000 and 2000 BCE are thought to be one cause of increasing global atmospheric methane concentrations over those millennia.
