Did you know...

Jatropha curcas - important source of biodiesel Did you know that the oil from the seeds of the tree species Jatropha curcas can be used to produce biofuel?

African Crop Science Journal vol.21 no.2 was updated on Bioline in early June. It features "Potential Pollinators and Floral Visitors of Introduced Tropical Biofuel Tree Species Jatropha curcas (Euphorbiaceae) in Southern Africa" by Negussie et al., which discusses the Jatropha curcas species and its vulnerability to pollinators and other insects in the two countries of Zambia and Malawi. Studying the species' vulnerability could help protect this valuable biofuel resource!
