Nigel G Halford (Editor) and Angela Karp (Editor), published by the RSC 2010
ISBN: 9781849730327


This book is a comprehensive reference for energy crops from the plant perspective with expert authors for each crop. Of particular importance are the chapters covering the sustainability aspects (social, economic and environmental), including food security. The chapters from representatives of the plant breeding and biofuel industries give an industrial perspective on the development of energy crops - why they have 'come of age' from a business point of view, the economics and the potential. They also describe how industry expects the sector to develop, with a wish-list of crop improvements that industry would like to see. The book is aimed at undergraduate and MSc courses covering bioenergy, climate change or environmental sciences and will also be of interest to those developing policy on bioenergy production.
