Growth, Pollination and Fruit Production of Cucurbita pepo


Jess’s research will be to determine how increased climate warming and decreased precipitation interact to affect the growth, pollination and fruit production of Cucurbita pepo. The study will yield novel findings for scientists, farmers and policy-makers regarding the effects of climate change, and thus carbon emissions, on pollination and fruit production in agricultural systems.
