Abstract

The increasing cultivation of energy crops in the last few years may have an impact on changes in the environment, biodiversity and the landscape. Due to a longer rest of soil and reduced application of pesticides, perennial crops such as short rotation coppice (SRC) offer benefits that can have a...
