CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Assessing the effects of Bt cotton on generalist arthropod predators.

This chapter illustrates the particular application of the scientific methodology (used during the pre-release stages of Bt cotton) supporting the risk assessment of nontarget organisms and biodiversity to generalist arthropod predators in Brazil. The steps in the methodology (i.e. species...

Cover for Improving the scientific basis for environmental risk assessment through the case study of Bt cotton in Brazil.

This chapter illustrates several methodologies for conducting the scientific analysis that supports environmental risk assessment of transgenic crops that are in the process of commercial development, using Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) cotton in Brazil as a case study. It highlights several points...
