The proportion of soil-borne pathogens increases with warming at the global scale

Nature Climate Change, Published online: 11 May 2020; doi:10.1038/s41558-020-0759-3 Plant pathogens threaten food security and ecosystem health. Projections of potential fungal plant pathogens under different warming and land-use scenarios indicate that warming temperatures under climate change will lead to increases in the relative abundance of such pathogens in most soils worldwide.
