Contents Notes
Ecological, genetic, and social factors affecting environmental assessment of transgenic plants -- Scientific assumptions and premises underpinning the regulation and oversight of environmental risks of transgenic plants -- APHIS regulatory policy for transgenic organisms -- Case studies of APHIS assessments -- Analysis of APHIS assessments -- Postcommercialization testing and monitoring for environmental effects of transgenic plants -- The future of agricultural biotechnology -- References -- Appendix A: Workshop to assess the regulatory oversight of GM crops and the next generation of genetic modifications for crop plants: agenda -- Appendix B: Workshop presenters/panelists -- Appendix C: "Dear colleague letter" -- Appendix D: "Dear colleague letter" recipients. "Environmental Effects of Transgenic Plants provides a wealth of information about transgenic processes, previous experience with the introduction of novel crops, principles of risk assessment and management, the science behind current regulatory schemes, issues in monitoring transgenic products already on the market, and more. The book discusses public involvement - and public confidence - in biotechnology regulation. And it looks to the future, exploring the potential of genetic engineering and the prospects for environmental effects." "The authoritative findings and recommendations in this volume will be important to anyone concerned about the impact of transgenic crops."--Jacket.
