The herbicide glyphosate became widely used in the United States and other parts of the world after the commercialization of glyphosate-resistant crops. These crops have constitutive overexpressionExpand
Comparative Losses of British Butterflies, Birds, and Plants and the Global Extinction Crisis
There is growing concern about increased population, regional, and global extinctions of species. A key question is whether extinction rates for one group of organisms are representative of otherExpand
Evolved resistance to glyphosate in rigid ryegrass (Lolium rigidum) in Australia.
Following 15 yr of successful use, glyphosate failed to control a population of the widespread grass weed rigid ryegrass in Australia. This population proved to be resistant to glyphosate in potExpand
Pollen-Mediated Movement of Herbicide Resistance Between Commercial Canola Fields

Understanding citizen science and environmental monitoring: final report on behalf of UK Environmental Observation Framework
Citizen science can broadly be defined as the involvement of volunteers in science. Over the past decade there has been a rapid increase in the number of citizen science initiatives. The breadth ofExpand
Evolved Glyphosate Resistance in Plants: Biochemical and Genetic Basis of Resistance1
Resistance to the herbicide glyphosate is currently known in at least eight weed species from many countries. Some populations of goosegrass from Malaysia, rigid ryegrass from Australia, and ItalianExpand
