Database maintenance

This second assignment aims to improve and maintain the database of assignment 1, by peer-review the submitted reports. It is therefore important that all participants of the course have already submitted the first assignment before starting this one. The pedagogic objective is that the participants of the course get familiar with at least two biomass production systems: the one they have created in the previous assignement (which is their choice) and another one created by some peers. By these means, all participants will expand their knowledge about this type of energy crops, in addition to those reviewed in the lectures.
