The ecological risks of engineered crops

Author: Jane Rissler; Margaret G Mellon
Publisher: Cambridge, Mass. : MIT Press, ©1996.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
The authors argue that the commercialization and release of transgenic crops on millions of acres of farmland can pose serious and costly consequences. They propose a practical, feasible method of conducting precommercialization evaluations that will balance the needs of ecological safety with those of agriculture and business.--From publisher description.
