Large-scale analyses of agriculture break down the yield, effectiveness, and economic and environmental impacts of agricultural production.  That sort of large-scale analysis hasn’t been widely applied to studying drought-tolerant plants that use crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM).  Davis, along with other researchers, study the benefits of CAM evaluations in this article.
