Biomass in different biotopes - an extensive resource

Dahlquist, Erik and Bundschuh, Jochen (2013) Biomass in different biotopes - an extensive resource. In: Biomass as energy source: resources, systems and applications. Sustainable Energy Developments, 3. Taylor & Francis (CRC Press), London, United Kingdom, pp. 87-107. ISBN 978-0-415-62087-1


In this chapter, an overview will be made of the available biomass resources, primarily in Europe, covering different climate zones from north to south, from arctic over boreal into Mediterranean temperate or ubtropical dimates. Europe can be seen as an example of what is actually very similar around the globe in Russia, China and North America. Some other climates and biotopes are also covered as comparison especially the tropics in West Africa (Twenneboah, 2000) and sub-tropics in South Africa. The intention is to give more details than the chapter on the global resources, where the coverage was more general. Much of the data comes from Eurostat (2010) and World Development Lndicators (2011). Concerning specific data on selected crop sources are among other Salisbury and Ross (1992) and Weidow (1998).
