Cover for A protocol for evaluating the ecological risks associated with gene flow from transgenic crops into their wild relatives: the case of cultivated sunflower and wild <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Helianthus annuus</i>.

A widely acknowledged risk associated with transgenic crops is the possibility that hybridization with wild relatives will cause fitness-related transgenes to persist in wild populations. If wild plants acquire transgenes coding for resistance to herbivory, disease and/or environmental stress, they ...

Cover for A review on interspecific gene flow from oilseed rape to wild relatives.

One of the main concerns about the commercial release of transgenic crops is the likelihood of transgene spread from cultivated species into wild relatives. This question is relevant for oilseed rape/canola (Brassica napus, AACC, 2n=38), as this species is partially allogamous with several wild...

Cover for A tiered approach to risk assessment of virus resistance traits based on studies with wild brassicas in England.

Concerns about the introduction of genetically modified crops frequently centre on the possibility of gene transfer to wild relatives, resulting either in the disruption of natural patterns of genetic diversity by introgressing into species gene pools or in the addition of traits which may cause...

Cover for Accidents of history.

Some crops seem just too good to be true. How on earth did our ancestors manage to develop bananas that don't contain seeds? Or hybridize unrelated species to produce totally novel crops? This chapter covers a number of crops that have been created by our habit of growing related plants together...
