Genetically Modified Pest-Protected Plants: Science and Regulation
A new report from the National Research Council, Genetically Modified Pest-Protected Plants: Science and Regulation, examines the health and environmental risks posed by plants that have been genetically engineered to resist pests and reviews federal regulation of these plants.
This briefing was for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released at a news conference at 11:00 a.m. on April 5, 2000. The full report is available online through the Web site of the National Academies Press.
