The North American Great Plains is a major global breadbasket but its agriculture is stressed by drought, heat, damaging winds, soil erosion and declining ground water resources. Biomass production and processing on the Plains would partially restore a perennial vegetative cover and create employment opportunities. This book explores the possibility that the ecology and economy of the Plains region, and similar regions, would benefit from the introduction of perennial biomass crops.…mehr

Rezensionen
From the reviews: "In A Biomass Future for the North American Great Plains, Norman Rosenberg, an agricultural meteorologist with degrees in soil physics and meteorology, sets out to examine the potential for the North American Great Plains as a major source of biomass for producing cellulosic ethanol. ... This book presents a comprehensive, thoroughly researched, and timely treatment of the topic. ... The book is appropriate for upper-level students and other individuals interested in sustainable agriculture, agroecology, bioenergy, and related topics." (Steven L. Fales, Great Plains Research, Vol. 19 (1), Spring, 2009)
