Transgenic plants are cultivated on a large scale worldwide, and most of the harvested products are fed to domestic animals. By gathering together more than 150 feeding studies with food-producing animals, and covering both first and second generation transgenic plants, Animal Nutrition with Transgenic Plants provides the first central resource of this information for researchers, students, policy makers and all those who are interested in future developments in the field.
"In my opinion this book is a should-read for people dealing with GM plants and their use in animal production and food safety, however, anybody may greatly benefit from it."
