An Indian pigeonpea GIF for the ages

Thanks to GIFmaker for allowing me to produce a, well, GIF, out of those maps of the distribution of India’s pigeonpea collection that I put up yesterday. I think you’ll need to click on it to get the full benefit.

Look at those swathes of green becoming orange, i.e. going up 2 degrees in mean maximum temperature during June-January. Will pigeonpea be able to adapt in situ? Or will there have to be a transfer of material from the currently orange areas? And what to do about the areas becoming red? Not much pigeonpea in the currently red areas…
