About this book

Microbiologist Jennifer Thomson takes us through the issues and concerns surrounding the development of genetically modified crops and their impact on the environment. Explains how such crops are developed and assessed and discusses the likelihood of negative effects on biodiversity, pollen spread, and organic farming.
