Will,
I was hoping you would send this note out to the physiological 
ecology list serve.
Thanks for your help.

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the following Bioenergy 
session at AGU Fall meeting "B65: Environmental aspects of bioenergy 
production". The session description is provided below. Please 
consider submitting abstract to this session. The abstract submission 
deadline is September 2.

B65: Environmental aspects of bioenergy production

As biofuel production expands globally, it is critical to understand 
the environmental consequences of cultivating biofuel crops. 
Knowledge gap exists on its probable impact on soil organic carbon 
pool, water resources, existing biodiversity, and greenhouse gas 
emissions. In this session, we will assess what is known or 
anticipated about environmental and sustainability factors associated 
with the cellulosic biofuels. We welcome papers quantifying the 
environmental impacts, designing standardized metrics and approaches, 
and using novel techniques to identify environmental trade-offs for 
biofuel production. Papers focusing on ecosystem models of biomass 
production and measurement techniques of energy, water and gas 
exchange are also encouraged.
