About the Cover: The impact of the changing climate on the surrounding environments is unequal: some benefit from it, but some suffer from it. Agriculture is the very example for this. In the field of agriculture, weeds and pests are the winners of the increasing carbon dioxide, whereas the food crops failed in this competition. (See page 205).
