Sugar yields by species. Glucose, xylose, and total sugar (glucose + xylose) yields calculated from combined pretreatment and enzymatic hydrolysis of each anatomical fraction and the corresponding mass fractions of each fraction for 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 overall standard error based on the variance of results for each anatomical fraction.
