  • The potential impact of GM crops on biodiversity has been a topic of interest both in general as well as specifically in the context of the Convention on Biological Diversity. Agricultural biodiversity has been defined at levels from genes to ecosystems that are involved or impacted by agricultural production ( After fifteen years of commercial cultivation, a substantial body of literature now exists addressing the potential impacts of GM crops on the environment… CONTINUE READING
