CT scanning shows why tilting trees produce better biofuel
from SciGuru Science News
Imperial researchers have used medical imaging techniques to explore why making willow trees grow at an angle (tilted trees) can vastly improve their biofuel yields. Using micro-CT scans, the team showed that the trees respond to being tilted by producing a sugar-rich, gelatinous fiber, which helps them stay upright.
