Book cover for Bioenergy and biological invasions: ecological, agronomic and policy perspectives on minimizing risk.

Description

This book contains 9 chapters focusing on the ecological, agronomic and policy perspectives on minimizing risk of bioenergy and biological invasions. Topics covered include potential risks of algae bioenergy feedstocks, gene flow and invasiveness in bioenergy systems, use of weed risk assessments to separate the crops from the weeds and eradication and control of bioenergy feedstocks, among others.
