      Diversity, an international, peer-reviewed Open Access journal. Dear Colleagues, The role of biodiversity in relation to short rotation willow and perennial rhizomatous grass crops grown mainly for biomass has been an almost constant factor in the debate about renewable energy crops, particularly in the temperate areas of the northern hemisphere, for several decades.   Short-rotation coppice willow (SRCW) is a fast-growing and potentially high-yielding energy crop. Transition to bioenergy has been identified in Sweden as one strategy to mitigate climate change and decrease the current dependency on fossil fuel. In this study, life cycle assessment was used to evaluate and compare the climate impacts of SRCW systems, Cited by:

This book, although written and published some years ago, is still valid in many respects, especially with regard to establishing and protecting the crop. The arguments in favour of biomass energy for production of power and heat are strong as by: Short Rotation Coppice (SRC) SRC consists primarily of densely planted, high yielding varieties of willow, and occasionally poplar, harvested on a two to five year cycle, although most commonly every three years.

The rootstock or stool is left in the ground and after each harvest new shoots emerge, as in traditional coppice. Farmers in Britain are beginning to recognize the possible benefits of short-rotation coppice, especially because non-food crops can be grown without forfeiting set-aside subsidies.

Although research and development have been underway for over 15 years, until now there has been little practical information for the working farmer, chartered surveyor, planner or Cited by: Buy Home-grown Energy from Short-rotation Coppice by Macpherson, George (ISBN: ) from Amazon's Book Store.

Short rotation coppice (SRC) is more than an energy crop; it is a multi-functional crop with a range of environmental benefits. It has a unique set of attributes based on its ability to be easily propagated, its fast growth and low level of inputs.

For example, in Britain, research indicates that short rotation coppice can be a poor habitat for small mammals unless the crop is allowed to become weedy.

In weedy plots, small mammal use included wood mice Apodemus sylvaticus, common shrew Sorex araneus and field vole Microtus agrestis while only wood mice, Cited by: Exploring the benefits of short rotation coppice in the UK A concept of Biomass and detailed explanation growing willowsfor energy production Coppicing Technology Ecological benefits of coppice systems Detailed guide to growing willow for energy No longer in print, we have two exceptional, used copies available.

energy purposes. Similar terms can be found in the literature such as short rotation plantations (SRP), short rotation forestry (SRF), or short rotation coppice (SRC). These terms are sometimes used synonymously, but their definitions are slightly different.

However, using plane trees as a dedicated energy crop might have limited possibilities in the Mediterranean region, as preliminary studies suggest that sycamore in short rotation coppice (SRC) provide lower yields than other fast-growing forest trees under the same conditions [10,15].Author: M.J.
