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.

Description

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...

Environmental risks associated with gene flow from transgenic cotton in Vietnam.

This chapter discusses the potential risks of gene flow from genetically modified insect-resistant cotton in Vietnam, using a general framework to guide gene flow risk assessment. This framework includes assessment stages beginning with the conception of the specific transgenic crops (pre-transformation assessment) and extending until after their release into the environment (post-release monitoring). Factors that affected the likelihood of transgene flow to each type of non-transgenic cotton population present in Vietnam are discussed, including the distribution of potential recipient plant populations, and the types of agricultural and social practices that might influence gene flow in each area. The potential adverse consequences of transgene introgression and spread in recipient populations are mentioned.
