The genus Clusia includes species that exhibit either the C3 or crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM) mode of photosynthesis, or those that are able to switch between both modes according to water availability. In order to screen for species-specific genetic variability, we investigated the key carboxylase for CAM, phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPC).(More)
According to Article 31 (3b) of Directive 2001/18/EC Member States shall establish public registers for recording the location of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) grown under part C (placing on the market). The primary intention is the monitoring of potential adverse environmental effects of such GMOs. This register (GMO location register) was(More)
It is important that objectives and implementation of general surveillance plans are linked to targets and goals of ‘what to protect’ in line with national and EU wide environmental protection goals. The determination of protection targets in general should practically be based on existing legal frameworks. In particular, the EU Directive 2004/35/EC (EC,(More)
Background: Lepidopteran and coleopteran species are the most important pests in maize. They can be controlled using genetically modified (GM) crops expressing insecticidal Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) proteins. The long-term success of this technology demands a pest resistance management. Important information for the successful management of resistance is(More)
According to Article 31 (3b) of Directive 2001/18/EC, Member States shall establish public registers for recording the cultivation of GM plants grown under part C. The primary purpose is the monitoring of potential adverse environmental effects of such GMOs. The German GMO location register was established in February 2005 by the Federal Office for Consumer(More)
The Directive 2001/18/EC regulates the deliberate release of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) into the environment. EU Member States are obligated by this Directive to establish location register to inform the public where GMOs are released into the environment. As a partner within the EU-project PRICE, the German Federal Office of Consumer Protection(More)
