Biofuels And Biodiversity In California: Trade-off Analysis by David M Stoms( )

1 edition published in 2008 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Biofuels from agricultural and other biomass are an important part of California’s strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and dependence on foreign oil. Ongoing land conversion for agricultural and urban uses has already imperiled many animal species in the state. This study investigated the potential impacts on wildlife of shifts in agricultural activity to increase biomass production. We applied knowledge of the suitability of California’s agricultural landscapes for wildlife species to evaluate wildlife effects associated with plausible scenarios of expanded production of five potential biofuel crops (sweet sorghum, sugar beets, bermudagrass, canola, and safflower). We generated alternative, spatially-explicit scenarios that minimized loss of habitat for a given level of biofuel production. Trade-off analysis compared the marginal changes per unit of energy for transportation costs, wildlife, and water-use. The choice of crop matters. Sweet sorghum and sugar beets require three times less land area per gallon of gasoline equivalent than bermudagrass and five to six times less than canola and safflower. Canola and safflower scenarios had the largest impacts on wildlife but the greatest reduction in water use. The bermudagrass scenarios would result in a slight overall improvement for wildlife over the current situation. Relatively minor redistribution of lands converted to biofuel could produce the same energy yield with much less impact on wildlife and very small increases in transportation costs for any crop. This framework provides a means to systematically evaluate potential wildlife impacts of alternative production scenarios. The accuracy of the predicted impacts could be improved with additional field study of wildlife use of agricultural landscapes, especially habitats associated with biofuel crops

Change in Urban Land Use and Associated Attributes in the Upper San Francisco Estuary, 1990-2006 by David M Stoms( )

1 edition published in 2010 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Land use is an ultimate driver of many of the stressors on the Upper San Francisco Estuary, but the magnitude and pattern of land use change has not been analyzed. This paper attempts to fill this knowledge gap through a screening-level risk assessment. Urban land use was compared within hydrodynamic subregions in 1990, 2000, and 2006. Ancillary data were then used to quantify secondary measures such as impervious cover, housing density, road density and road crossings. Despite the rapid growth of the Bay Area, Sacramento, and Stockton metropolitan areas, the percentage of urban area and rates of change in the subregions are generally low to moderate when compared to other estuaries in the United States. The spatial data sets used in this analysis have been posted online to a public repository to be used by other researchers
