Best Practices for Multi-Use of Miscanthus Feedstock Production Landscapes

This research will lead to the creation of a multi-use landscape management tool to determine the best practices for Miscanthus feedstock production landscapes. By combining empirical data with ecological and economic theories and models, the model will allow stakeholders to visualize and quantify the tradeoffs of Miscanthus, identify the optimal landscape configurations and growing sites for future feedstock production; and obtain estimates of the social and environmental effects of Miscanthus introduction.
