Bioenergy Decisions Involve Wildlife Habitat and Land Use Trade-offs

Release Date:

Research from North Carolina State University and U.S Geological Survey (USGS) focuses on bioenergy.

From a North Carolina State University press release:

“New research from North Carolina State University and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) finds that choosing how to meet bioenergy goals means making trade-offs about which wildlife species and ecosystems will be most impacted. The work focuses on the southeastern United States, but yields general insights that could inform bioenergy policy globally.”
