Abstract The ELUM project was commissioned to provide greater understanding on the GHG and soil carbon changes arising as a result of direct land-use change (dLUC) to bioenergy crops, with a primary focus on the second-generation bioenergy crops Miscanthus, short rotation coppice (SRC) willow and short rotation forestry (SRF). The project was UK-bound, but with many outcomes which could be internationally relevant. Indirect land-use change impacts were out of scope. This deliverable provides an up to date (2012) overview of relevant literature and has enabled the identification of consistent research messages and areas where uncertainties exist. In particular, there is a large dependency on models with limited sensitivity analysis or validation to predict the impact of Land Use Change on Greenhouse Gas (GHG) balance and changes in soil carbon stocks leading to carbon sequestration and net benefit to the system. Linking research at field scale, to activities in modelling in a multidisciplinary group such as that of ELUM, is world leading and of particular value to a wide range of stakeholders. This document outlines the full methodology for the literature search (as already provided for D1.3) and that for the meta-analysis
