Cover for Assessing the potential for ecological harm from gene flow to crop wild relatives.

The conservational and ecological risks posed by gene flow from all modern crops to crop wild relatives is examined, and the extent to which the principles developed for the risk assessment of genetically modified crops can be applied to this broader set of problems is explored. A case study on...
