Research on Using Marginal Lands for Biofuels Published in Nature PDF Print E-mail

Dr. Ilya Gelfand, KBS research associate, and Dr. Phil Robertson, KBS faculty member, have published an article on the use of marginal lands as a source of biofuels crops in the current issue of Nature.

Data for the study was taken from 20 years of research at the KBS Long-term Ecological Research (LTER) site. The study looks at using land unsuited for food crops to grow plants to be used in biofuel production.
