Ecosystem Exchange: OzFlux Webinar Series

Dr Caitlin Moore: ‘Bioenergy crop fluxes and an a-maize-ing conundrum’

As we enter an age of biofuel innovation, research efforts have focused on how bioenergy crops alter the carbon, water and energy cycles of the landscape.

Corn-soybean are the main bioenergy crops, but with the growing push for more sustainable and clean energy sources, alternatives are likely to become more widespread in the future.

Dr Caitlin Moore of the University of Western Australia will present findings from her research, including data from long-term monitoring equipment installed in bioenergy and food crops, the impacts of land conversion on carbon and nitrogen cycles, and an a-maize-ing flux conundrum.
