Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs): The Significance of Gene Flow Through Pollen Transfer: A Review and Interpretation of Published Literature and Recent/Current Research from the ESF 'Assessing the Impact of GM Plants' (ASIGM) Programme for the European Science Fountain and the European Environmental Agency
European Environment Agency, 2002 - Science - 75 pages
Written by experts from the European Science Foundation, this report examines the potential environmental impact of the transfer by pollen of genes from six major genetically modified (GM) crop types that are close to commercial release in the EU: oilseed rape, sugar beet, potatoes, maize, wheat and barley. The report also includes a short review of the current status of GM fruit crops in Europe.
