Summary, abstract or table of contents
This review discusses the potential ecological consequences of the commercial use in agriculture of genetically modified insect resistant crops. Further, it also examines the impacts caused by the change in agricultural practices, and attempt to identify gaps and possible opportunities for research, considering this new technological tool. The analysis and comments are based on the current knowledge of the risks and benefits of these genetically modified insect resistant crops, within the context of traditional insect management strategies.
