I was hoping you would send this note out to the physiological
ecology list serve.
Thanks for your help.
We would like to draw your attention to the following Bioenergy
session at AGU Fall meeting "B65: Environmental aspects of bioenergy
production". The session description is provided below. Please
consider submitting abstract to this session. The abstract submission
deadline is September 2.
B65: Environmental aspects of bioenergy production
As biofuel production expands globally, it is critical to understand
the environmental consequences of cultivating biofuel crops.
Knowledge gap exists on its probable impact on soil organic carbon
pool, water resources, existing biodiversity, and greenhouse gas
emissions. In this session, we will assess what is known or
anticipated about environmental and sustainability factors associated
with the cellulosic biofuels. We welcome papers quantifying the
environmental impacts, designing standardized metrics and approaches,
and using novel techniques to identify environmental trade-offs for
biofuel production. Papers focusing on ecosystem models of biomass
production and measurement techniques of energy, water and gas
exchange are also encouraged.
