Agricultural and biofuel implications of a species diversity experiment with native perennial grassland plants
Publication: Agriculture, Ecosystems and Environment. (2009), doi: 10.1016/j.agee.2009.10.017.
Bicultures including adapted legumes so far appear to be an adequate starting point for plant breeding programs targeting low input perennial production systems. As the science develops, the species developed for these simplified systems might later be combined into more species-diverse systems to provide expanded ecosystem functions.
