Bioenergy from agriculture: factors related to biodiversity

Year: 2012 Author: Nieves Lopez Izquierdo
Description:
The use of Genetically Engineered Crops (GECs) carries both potential benefits and risks. While it is recognised that they can help to introduce useful traits and increase productivity, there are also concerns about adverse ecological impacts. The balance between risks and benefits is likely to vary according to the different conditions of individual countries. It is advisable that comprehensive biosafety risk assessments are conducted before governments make decisions on Genetically Engineered biofuel crops.
