About this book

This book, resulting from an initiative of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, provides the mathematical background to model plant and microbial growth in soil. Written by a team of international experts, this book will appeal to a wide range of biologists, ecologists and regulators interested in the environmental consequences of biotechnology.

This volume, is however, novel in that it deals with the subject [releasing genetically manipulated organisms into the environment] from the standpoint of mathematical modelling of plant and microbial populations and gene flow. - Heredity
