Of fruit crops, grape is the most largely cultivated and has the highest economic importance globally; it is part of the Mediterranean bio-cultural heritage that is threatened by climate change. However, the analysis of the climate effects on grape and other crop and natural ecosystems on a regional scale has been vexing. Here, we review how sparse physiologically based demographic models (PBDM, http://www.casasglobal.org) in the context of the geographic information system GRASS GIS (https://grass.osgeo.org) can be used to examine the effects of the extant weather and climate change on the dynamics of the interaction between grape and European grapevine moth across the Euro-Mediterranean region. Further, by including management-relevant complexity in a mechanistic way, the PBDM/GIS system provides the basis for a regional bioeconomic analysis of the grape system and a template for similar analyses that require modest data and funding.here
