Phytoremediation of Chlorpyrifos Insecticide: The Use of Woody Plants and Transgenics to Enhance and Understand the Uptake, Translocation, and Transformation of Chlorpyrifos
Poplar and willow trees have a significant ability to take up CPS and to translocate/degrade it within the plants and thus, assist in removing it from the hydroponic solution. To our knowledge, the poplar and willow species presented in this study were the first woody plants to be tested for potential phytoremediation ...
Use of Solarization to Kill the Root Crown and Reduce the Seed Bank Viability of Rubus armeniacus Focke and Cytisus scoparius (L.) Link
Himalayan blackberry (Rubus armeniacus Focke) and Scotch broom (Cytisus scoparius (L.) Link) are two common invasive species of the Pacific Northwest. While many methods currently exist to control these two species, both posses inherent characteristics and structures making them resistant to existent methods in the forms of ...
Life Cycle Assessment of Biofuels Produced from Short Rotation Woody Crops
In an effort to find a substitute for petroleum based liquid transportation fuels many countries are turning to biofuels. The newest form of these biofuels, also known as the second generation or cellulosic biofuels, have received considerable attention. Short rotation woody crops (SRWC) such as willow and poplar have been ...
