This assessment is based on extensive review of the relevant scientific literature and measurements and data collected and published by U.S. government agencies. Written by a team of 38 – scientists and researchers from universities, national laboratories, non-government organizations, and government agencies – the authors are experts in the fields of agriculture, biodiversity, and land and water resources. To generate this assessment of the effects of climate and climate change, the authors conducted an exhaustive review, analysis, and synthesis of the scientific literature, considering more than 1,000 separate publications.
