[Extract] We open the third year of publication and third volume of GCB-Bioenergy with our second Special Issue. The first concerned estimating feedstock productivity via biophysical models combined with estimates of available land area and economic projections to determine the potential availability of biomass, primarily in the United States (Hellwinckel et al., 2010; Jager et al., 2010; Jain et al., 2010; West, 2010; Zhang et al., 2010). Here, we focus on the potential of a single group of plants, agaves, as a potential feedstock that will not compete with food and fodder production, while making use of degraded land.
