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.
