"Overall the volume is very well written, packed with accessible information, and aptly models a transparent mode of the risk assessment process. The book is multifaceted, and includes a variety of insights not found in other treatments of GMO risk assessment. It sets the stage for a new standard of risk assessment, in which the methods, quality of evidence, and barriers to discovery are discussed openly."
Deborah K Letourneau, Environmental Biosafety Research, 3(4), 2004
"An important contribution that helps address the critical shortage of detailed, applied case studies of risk assessment for GMOs in developing countries."
R Hill, Biosafety Programme, Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity
"The questions asked and recommendations of the IOBC Working Group are scientifically sound and should apply."
C Ngichabe, ASARECA Biotechnology and Biosafety Program
"Very thorough, systematic and logical application of the guidelines which represents a major effort to bring science into the foreground of the GMO biosafety issue."
H Herren, Director General ICIPE
