Summary, abstract or table of contents
This article describes the initial steps in the environmental risk assessment process and illustrates an approach that could be taken for GM crops tolerant to an abiotic stress (e.g. water, salt, cold, and heat).

The following article headings are discussed:
1. Problem formulation in environmental risk assessment
2. Define assessment endpoints
3. Develop a conceptual modle
4. Develop an analysis plan
5. Problem formulation applied to GM crops
6. Problem Formulation for a Hypothetical Drought-Tolerant Maize
7. Conclusion
