Media report on study of climate change impacts on blueberry barrens

The Bangor Daily News, Mainebiz, Morning Ag Clips, the Penobscot Bay Pilot and Eurasia Review, picked up a University of Maine news release highlighting research which shows that the blueberry barrens of Downeast Maine are warming at a faster rate than the rest of Maine, suggesting that unique strategies to mitigate climate change are required to sustain the blueberry industry. Maine Public spoke with Rafa Tasnim, a UMaine Ph.D. student and blueberry researcher, about the impact of drought on blueberry production.
