Metabolic Acclimation and Carbon-use Efficiency of Short-Rotation Woody Crop Species Grown on Marginal Agricultural Land of the Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley

Description :  This project research is to determine how management intensity and environment influence plant gas exchange and C use efficiency in short-rotation woody crops (SRWC) that have the potential to provide large quantities of woody material for biofuels across the Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley and the larger southeastern U.S. This study will provide insight into the ability of short-rotation woody crops to sequester and store carbon while also providing a source of biomass for the production of sustainable bioenergy.
