172 The Environmental and Ecological Challenges of Biomass Production: II

Poster Session
C03 Crop Ecology, Management & Quality
As cellulosic feedstock sources continue to emerge as a viable option for ethanol production, questions have been raised regarding the environmental and ecological aspects of biomass cropping systems. This session will evaluate the sustainability of bioenergy crop systems with presentations on carbon cycling, nutrient requirements, and other biomass production aspects.
