Contents Notes
"This timely book explores the risks and benefits of crops that are genetically modified for pest resistance, the urgency of establishing an appropriate regulatory framework for these products, and the importance of public understanding of the issues." "Also included is a critical review of the federal policies toward transgenic products, the 1986 coordinated framework among the key federal agencies in the field, and the rules proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency for regulation of plant pesticides." "Case studies explore the commercial production and oversight of transgenic crops, including "Bt" crops, the most widely used transgenic pest-protected plants." "Clearing up misconceptions and offering clear guidance, Genetically Modified Pest-Protected Plants will be immediately important to anyone concerned about the issues of transgenic crops."--Jacket.
