Compendium of transgenic crop plants /   Publication: [S.l.] : Wiley-Blackwell, 2008 . 2776 p. ; , The Set offers a comprehensive review of the commercially relevant transgenic plants developed and presently utilized. Volumes 1-9 cover around 100 plant species, from crops to forest trees. Volume 10 is the master index volume. Each chapter covers one particular species (or sometimes group of closely related species) and the transgenic versions developed for that particular species. Key features: • Offers a complete description of the successfully developed transgenic plants for around 100 commercially relevant crops from fruits and vegetables to grains, industrial crops and forest tree species • Covers the transgenic techniques used in the molecular tailoring of traits relevant from an agricultural, medicinal and environmental point of view • Explores future developments, from desired traits to expected new technologies • Examines risks and concerns around the use of GM crops • Discusses public perception, industrial perspectives and political and economic consequences • Contributions from over 300 leading scientists from around the world Provides a valuable and inclusive reference for students, researchers, scientists and industry professionals, studying and working on transgenic plants. 25 cm.

Environmental risk assessment of genetically modified organisms. Volume 4, Challenges and opportunities with Bt cotton in Vietnam /   Publication: Wallingford, UK ; | Cambridge, MA CABI, 2008 . 1 online resource (xxi, 360 pages, [2] pages of plates) : , 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), focuses on the potential environmental effects of Bt cotton in Vietnam within a broader context of setting procedures and methods for regulating the introduction of GM crops. The environmental effects considered are those on nontarget organisms, gene flow to cotton relatives, and the evolution of resistance in the target pests. Processes for evaluating the potential benefits of GM plants in Vietnam and the necessary requirements for characterizing transgenes and transgenic traits are covered. This book will be used as a technical manual to enable Vietnamese scientists to evaluate the potential environmental impacts of Bt cotton prior to commercialization. This publication will also equip governments, scientists, potential users of GMOs, and civil society organizations in Vietnam and other countries with knowledge on methods that are available for conducting environmental risk assessments of GMOs.
