Climate change is generating similar effects on the occurrence. This caused the severity of disease for crops in agriculture and wild plants in their natural habitats. However, the complexity of natural ecosystems generates a posh array of interactions between wild plants and pathogens in marked contrast to those produced within the structural and species simplicity of most crops. Understanding the various impacts of global climate change on agricultural and natural ecosystems requires accounting for the particular interactions between a personal pathogen, and its host. It also impacts their subsequent effects on the interchange among the host and other species within the community. Ultimately, progress would require looking past short-term fluctuations to multiyear trends to grasp the character and extent of plant and pathogen evolutionary adaptation and determine the fate of plants under future temperature change.
