Cover for The bioenergy landscape: sustainable resources or the next great invasion?

Government policies have spurred efforts to develop dedicated bioenergy crops that could avoid greenhouse gas emissions associated with fossil fuel combustion and the consequences of land use change associated with "first-generation" biofuels. Dedicated bioenergy crops, slated to be cultivated on...

Cover for Gene flow and invasiveness in bioenergy systems.

Gene flow between crops and their wild or weedy relatives can result in the establishment of hybrid populations outside of cultivation. Here, we examine the potential for gene flow between several emerging bioenergy feedstocks and their compatible relatives, and the factors that affect the...

Cover for Using weed risk assessments to separate the crops from the weeds.

The characters of the ideal bioenergy crop are shared by many of our worst invasive plants, and we are in need of methods to identify their invasive potential prior to large-scale introduction. Unfortunately, predicting which species will be invasive and in what location is often viewed as a near...

Cover for Bioenergy and novel plants: the regulatory structure.

In response to agricultural concerns, US legislatures in the late 19th and early 20th centuries enacted laws to regulate invasive plant species whose presence negatively affected crop yields. More recently, these laws regulating noxious weeds have expanded their focus to protect the environment and ...

Cover for "Seeded-yet-sterile" perennial grasses: towards sustainable and non-invasive biofuel feedstocks.

Sustainable cropping systems for leading candidate biofuel crops currently focus predominantly on perennial grasses for which assessments of invasiveness potential remain incomplete. Perennial C4 grasses have significant capacity for biomass accumulation across diverse environments, providing...

Cover for Eradication and control of bioenergy feedstocks: what do we really know?

Feedstock removal is a matter of fundamental importance that is often completely overlooked or only given cursory attention in the current bioenergy dialogue. Feedstock removal generally refers to eradication or control efforts applied in a range of situations that may include everything from...
