Large-scale characterization of drought pattern: a continent-wide modelling approach applied to the Australian wheatbelt--spatial and temporal trends.
Plant response to drought is complex, so that traits adapted to a specific drought type can confer disadvantage in another drought type. Understanding which type(s) of drought to target is of primeExpand

Breeding for the future: what are the potential impacts of future frost and heat events on sowing and flowering time requirements for Australian bread wheat (Triticum aestivium) varieties?
Extreme climate, especially temperature, can severely reduce wheat yield. As global warming has already begun to increase mean temperature and the occurrence of extreme temperatures, it has becomeExpand

Environment characterization as an aid to wheat improvement: interpreting genotype-environment interactions by modelling water-deficit patterns in North-Eastern Australia.
Genotype-environment interactions (GEI) limit genetic gain for complex traits such as tolerance to drought. Characterization of the crop environment is an important step in understanding GEI. AExpand

The shifting influence of drought and heat stress for crops in northeast Australia.
Characterization of drought environment types (ETs) has proven useful for breeding crops for drought-prone regions. Here, we consider how changes in climate and atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2 )Expand

Stay-green traits to improve wheat adaptation in well-watered and water-limited environments
Highlight Combining stay-green traits and environmental water-stress characterization, both standardized relative to anthesis, provides a powerful method to characterize and select for adaptation toExpand

Contribution of Crop Models to Adaptation in Wheat.
With world population growing quickly, agriculture needs to produce more with fewer inputs while being environmentally friendly. In a context of changing environments, crop models are useful tools toExpand

Assessment of the Potential Impacts of Wheat Plant Traits across Environments by Combining Crop Modeling and Global Sensitivity Analysis
A crop can be viewed as a complex system with outputs (e.g. yield) that are affected by inputs of genetic, physiology, pedo-climatic and management information. Application of numerical methods forExpand

Characterising the crop environment – nature, significance and applications
While genotype × environment interactions (G × E) impede progress in plant breeding, efforts have focused more on their statistical analysis than on characterizing crop environments per se.Expand
