MADISON, Wisconsin , February 18, 2011 (press release) – This month, the DOE Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC) will launch a seminar series featuring a wide range of bioenergy experts.

GLBRC Sustainability Co-leader Randy Jackson will kick off the series on the Michigan State University campus Feb. 23. Jackson is an associate professor of grassland ecology and agronomy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and researches how ecosystem services are influenced by diversity at many trophic levels. Jackson is interested in finding ways to match biofuel cropping systems to environmental settings such that ecosystem services are optimized.

In his talk, titled “What are the bottlenecks to productive, perennial, polycultures for bioenergy?” Jackson will use early results from the field to illustrate limitations in various biomass production scenarios, and to explore options to address these bottlenecks.

“We are excited for this opportunity to not only share the latest bioenergy information with the industry and public, but also to create a unique network for the researchers at GLBRC with experts around the world,” said John Greenler, GLBRC education and outreach director.

The new series is open to the public and will alternate between the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Michigan State University campuses. Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to attend along with industry and community leaders interested in renewable energy.
