A Valuable Biomass Crop for Energyav Andrea Monti1839
The demand for renewable energies from biomass is growing steadily as policies are enacted to encourage such development and as industry increasingly sees an opportunity to develop bio-energy enterprises. Recent policy changes in the EU, USA and other countries are spurring interest in the cultivation of energy crops such as switchgrass. Switchgrass has gained and early lead in the race to find a biomass feedstock for energy production (and for the almost requisite need for bio-based products from such feedstocks). Switchgrass: A Valuable Biomass Crop for Energy provides a comprehensive guide to the biology, physiology, breeding, culture and conversion of switchgrass as well as highlighting various environmental, economic and social benefits. Considering this potential energy source, Switchgrass: A Valuable Biomass Crop for Energy brings together chapters from a range of experts in the field, including a foreword from Kenneth P. Vogel, to collect and present the environmental benefits and characteristics of this a crop with the potential to mitigate the risks of global warming by replacing fossil fuels. Including clear figures and tables to support discussions, Switchgrass: A Valuable Biomass Crop for Energy provides a solid reference for anyone with interest or investment in the development of bioenergy; researchers, policy makers and stakeholders will find this a key resource.

From the reviews: "The editor, Andrea Monti, assembled a group of distinguished authors who have not only provided comprehensive documentation of research conducted on switchgrass, but also unique and valuable analyses of this information that have not been published elsewhere. ... It is a recommended reference for anyone who has an interest in switchgrass ... . it will be recommended reading for my undergraduate students, and required reading for my graduate students." (David Bransby, BioEnergy Research, Vol. 5, 2012)
