Environmental risk assessment of genetically modified organisms: challenges and opportunities with Bt cotton in Vietnam, Vol.4.

Book cover for Environmental risk assessment of genetically modified organisms: challenges and opportunities with Bt cotton in Vietnam, Vol.4.


This book (13 chapters), the fourth in a series (the first, second and third books focused on Bt maize in Kenya, Bt cotton in Brazil, and risk assessment and management of transgenic fish, respectively) that provides scientifically peer-reviewed tools that can help developing countries strengthen their own scientific and technical capacity in biosafety of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), foc...


Chapter 5 (Page no: 115)

Non-target and biological diversity risk assessment.

This chapter discusses the following procedures for risk assessment in Bt cotton using the non-target risk assessment model developed by scientists of the GMO ERA Project ("International Project on GMO Environmental Risk Assessment Methodologies", which is a continuation of the GMO Guidelines Project, which was launched by scientists of the International Organization for Biological Control Global Working Group on "Transgenic Organisms in Integrated Pest Management and Biological Control"): (1) identify relevant functional groups of biological diversity associated with adverse effects, (2) list and prioritize species or ecological processes, (3) identify potential exposure pathways and adverse effects pathways, and use these to formulate and prioritize risk hypotheses, and (4) develop an analysis plan and suggest designs for experiments to test risk hypotheses.
