Background, aim, and scopeThe possibility of gene transfer from genetically modified oilseed rape (OSR) to its cultivated or wild relatives is of concern since its commercial cultivation, because of its potential weediness and impact on the environment. Introgression of modified genes can affect conservation of agricultural crops, because there are many cultivars and wild Brassicaceae that may cross with genetically modified OSR (Brassica napus) in Japan. Japan imports more than 2 million tons… Expand
Landscape-scale distribution and persistence of genetically modified oilseed rape (Brassica napus) in Manitoba, Canada
TLDR
The findings suggest that these large-scale anthropogenic dispersal processes are sufficient to enable persistence despite limited natural seed dispersal in escaped GMHT OSR populations. Expand
Long-term monitoring of feral genetically modified herbicide-tolerant Brassica napus populations around unloading Japanese ports
TLDR
Genetically modified, herbicide-tolerant Brassica napus plants originating from seed spill have recently been found along roadsides leading from Japanese ports that unload oilseed rape and are not invading native vegetation surrounding its populations and not likely to cross with congeners in Japanese environment. Expand
Unexpected Diversity of Feral Genetically Modified Oilseed Rape (Brassica napus L.) Despite a Cultivation and Import Ban in Switzerland
TLDR
Feral GM plants most frequently occurred at unloading sites for ships, indicating that ship cargo traffic is the main entry pathway for GM oilseed rape. Expand
Regionalisation of flora elements in field boundaries sensitive to hybridisation with genetically modified oilseed rape
TLDR
A methodology for the regionalisation of the hybridisation risk of GM oilseed rape (OSR) (Brassica napus L.) with respect to related hybridisation partners (both OSR and related species) as well as neighbouring arable fields and biotopes is developed. Expand
Cultivation-independent establishment of genetically engineered plants in natural populations: current evidence and implications for EU regulation
TLDR
The precautionary principle as established in EU Directive 2001/18 can only be applied where efficient measures are available to remove genetically engineered organisms from the environment should this become necessary, if a removal from the Environment would not be practically feasible, undesirable developments could not be mitigated. Expand
Exploratory study on the presence of GM oilseed rape near German oil mills
TLDR
An approach for the sampling and testing of feral OSR that is based on floristic mapping and rapid tests for the determination of herbicides tolerances is presented, suggesting that a spread of herbicide tolerant GM OSR has not occurred to date. Expand
Detection of feral GT73 transgenic oilseed rape (Brassica napus) along railway lines on entry routes to oilseed factories in Switzerland
TLDR
Feral OSR plants were found most frequently along the routes to the oilseed facilities, and in larger amounts on risk hot spots compared to sites of random sampling, to obtain a reference status prior to cultivation of genetically modified oilseed rape in Switzerland. Expand
Transgenic glyphosate-resistant canola (Brassica napus) can persist outside agricultural fields in Australia
TLDR
The estimation of demographic parameters (plant survival and fecundity) suggest that GR canola has low likelihood to become invasive, as plants are subjected to biological and abiotic stressors likely limiting the fitness. Expand
Status of feral oilseed rape in Europe: its minor role as a GM impurity and its potential as a reservoir of transgene persistence
TLDR
Feral oilseed rape is not a relevant source of macroscopic impurity at its present density in the landscape but provides opportunity for genetic recombination, stacking of transgenes and the evolution of genotypes that under strong selection pressure could increase and re-occupy fields to constitute an economic weed burden and impurity in future crops. Expand
Establishment Success and Potential Weediness of Oilseed Rape (Brassica napus L.) under Ruderal Conditions in View of GMO Risk Assessment
TLDR
This study identified soil quality and disturbance as factors which influence feral plant establishment and found that OSR is probably more micrositethan seed-limited under stressful ruderal conditions, further stressing the importance of considering urban OSR populations in risk assessment. Expand

Monitoring the escape of transgenic oilseed rape around Japanese ports and roadsides.
TLDR
The first published example of feral, transgenic populations occurring in a nation where the transgenic crop has not been cultivated commercially is reported, and it is suggested that oilseed rape plants have not been commercially cultivated in Japan. Expand
Hazard mitigation or mitigation hazard?
TLDR
It is argued that the proposed mitigation approach could increase escape and persistence of transgene varieties rather than reducing them, and the development of effective hazard mitigation measures in the risk evaluation of genetically modified organisms requires thorough theoretical and empirical ecological analyses rather than assumptions about abstract fitness categories that apply only in parts of the environment where the plant can occur. Expand
Opportunities for gene transfer from transgenic oilseed rape (Brassica napus) to related species
TLDR
The purpose of this report is to review the literature to assess the ease with which Brassica napus can hybridize with related species and to consider the fertility and vigour of the F1, F2 and backcross generations. Expand
Would genetically modified dwarfed oilseed rape (Brassica napus) increase feral survival
Background, aim and scope Transgenic oilseed rape (Brassica napus L.; OSR) is estimated to be environmentally and economically problematic because volunteers and ferals occur frequently and becauseExpand
Hybridization Between Brassica napus and B. rapa on a National Scale in the United Kingdom
TLDR
A national assessment of hybridization between rapeseed and B. rapa is presented, set targets for strategies to eliminate hybridization and represent the first step toward quantitative risk assessment on a national scale. Expand
Pollen-Mediated Movement of Herbicide Resistance Between Commercial Canola Fields
TLDR
This study quantifies at a landscape level the gene flow that occurs from herbicide-resistant canola crops to nearby crops not containing herbicide resistance genes. Expand
Gene transfer between canola (Brassica napus L. and B. campestris L.) and related weed species
TLDR
The potential of gene transfer between canola (Brassica napus and B. campestris) and related weed species was determined by hand pollination under controlled greenhouse conditions by investigating biological and cytological aspects necessary for successful hybrid seed production. Expand
Destiny of a transgene escape from Brassica napus into Brassica rapa
TLDR
It is suggested that the transgene integrated on a C-chromosome (or better on a cytoplasm genome) is safer than that on an A- chromosome, and the effect of genetic drift and intergenomic exchange on gene transmission rate was discussed. Expand
Progressive introgression between Brassica napus (oilseed rape) and B. rapa
TLDR
It seemed that B. rapa most often functioned as the maternal plant in the introgression process and that the amount of oilseed rape DNA was highly diminished in the offspring compared to their introgressed maternal plants, but it is questioned whether it can be regarded as containment to position transgenes in the chloroplast or in specific parts of the nuclear genome of B. Rapa. Expand

TLDR
This study is the first to show introgression between B.napus and B.rapa under natural conditions in a mixed weedy population of oilseed rape and its relative B. rapa usingspecies-specific AFLP-markers. Expand
