Sugar yields by anatomy. Glucose, xylose, and total sugar (glucose + xylose) yields from combined pretreatment and enzymatic hydrolysis for the anatomical fractions of Lupinus perennis, Schizachyrium scoparium, and Poa pratensis. Yields represent the amount of sugar released per amount of sugar available in the biomass (for example, glucose released/glucose in biomass). Error bars represent the standard error of experiments performed with six replicates for each particle-size fraction.
