  Study will assess animal climate impacts

Friday 15 February 2008
cattleThe Met Office is to investigate the increasing effects of climate change on animal and plant health over the coming decades, it announced this week. The Hadley Centre-based body is to host a series of workshops exploring the issues, following the current mild winter that it predicts will become the norm in the 21st century.

“The arrival of Bluetongue disease in the UK in recent years is evidence that changing climate is already impacting animal health,” explained John Gloster, Met Office Research Scientist. “The Met Office, working with other interested parties, is taking the lead in providing the advice and solutions government, veterinary experts and farmers will need to mitigate against the effects of climate change on animal and plant health in the future.”

Defra, the NFU, the Veterinary Laboratory Agency and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) will be involved in the Met Office’s project.
