BORJAS VENTURA, Ricardo; MENDOZA SOTO, Vanessa; JULCA OTINIANO, Alberto  and  LUPINO GRATAO, Priscila. Effect of water stress and temperature increase on productive, physiological and biochemical variables of "cacao" Theobroma cacao L.. Arnaldoa [online]. 2019, vol.26, n.1, pp.287-296. ISSN 1815-8242.

Drought and temperature will be increased by climatic change. Many crops will be affected, for example, "cacao" Theobroma cacao L. (Malvaceae). Both water stress and temperature increase can cause physiological and biochemical damages, which diminish the productivity of this species. Moreover, there are few studies about the effect of these abiotic stresses on cacao. Therefore, it is necessary to explore the genetic material that can be used in conditions of climate change. In this sense, this review tries to relate the existing works and to draw strategies on the importance of this crop in the studies that involve climate change.
