Subject
Summary, abstract or table of contents
This paper discusses the consequences for the ecosystem due to field releases of genetically modified crops. Further, it discusses policy responses to risk and the Bayesian analysis as a means for improving the informational basis for decision making under uncertainty about potentially irreversible effects on the ecosystem.
