  1. Data are given as average values ± standard deviation. Different roman superscript letters indicate significantly different average values in the same column (< 0.05). G/G + X + A + L is an estimate of relative glucan enrichment of the biomass, calculated from the g/100 g TS values as Glucan/(Glucan + Xylan + Arabinan + Lignin)
