Transgenic wheat and non-target impacts on insect herbivores and food webs


Von Burg, S K. Transgenic wheat and non-target impacts on insect herbivores and food webs. 2011, University of Zurich, Faculty of Science.

Abstract

This PhD thesis combines research on ecological risks of genetically modified (GM) plants with plant-insect interactions and food web ecology. In this chapter I will review the current global state of GM crops, give a short overview over the concerns about ecological impacts of GM plants and introduce the study system. At the end of the chapter the goals of this thesis are stated.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
