With the concern over the current drought in the Midwest and other extraordinary weather changes over the last few years- Master Gardeners are often asked about climate changes and how these affect our gardens and plants.
Several good research based resources are currently available:
1. From the University of Kentucky check out this fact sheet http://www.ca.uky.edu/agc/pubs/id/id191/id191.pdf
2.The CoCoRaHS program has a slide set that discusses this topic, among other climate and gardening topics. http://www.cocorahs.org/Content.aspx?page=MasterGardener
3. I like this pub from the Union of Concerned Scientists-
Many states use these publications as part of their Master Gardener trainings.
