Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Gene flow is not unique to genetically modified (GM) crops, but the possible spread of transgenic DNA to wild and domesticated relatives raises a new set of issues for scientists and policymakers to consider. A primary ecological concern is that transgenic plants will breed with wild relatives and confer to the resulting plant a trait not otherwise found in nature, thereby altering the gene pool for that crop and potentially threatening biodiversity. Economists have pointed out that speciality markets (such as organic crops) could be harmed economically if genetic material from transgenic plants were to spread and mix with a crop intended to exclude transgenic materials. Gene flow from GM crops to related plants is therefore a primary concern for regulators, and one that companies need to address.This volume considers the assessment, measurement and management of the risks of gene flow from GM plants, set in the context of gene flow in general. Authors are drawn from major academic and industrial laboratories. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: Gene flow is not unique to genetically modified (GM) crops, but the possibility of the spread of transgenic DNA to wild and domesticated relatives raises a new set of issues for scientists and policymakers to consider. Unfortunately, we are still too often unable to quantify the risks of ecological damage associated with gene flow. This is due partly to the huge breadth of knowledge required to assemble a comprehensive risk assessment. For example, many scientists active in research on the mechanics of gene flow nevertheless lack a deep understanding of what is required to identify, characterise and assess ecological risk, and many of those who are aware of the risk assessment process and the framework used for legislation have insufficient knowledge of the reproductive biology, agricultural systems, modelling and ecological literature required to compile a balanced risk assessment.
This book, set in the context of gene flow in general, considers the assessment, measurement and management of the risks of gene flow from GM plants, combining the expertise of all the various stakeholders. It is directed at researchers and professionals in plant molecular genetics and plant ecology, in both the academic and industrial sectors.
