|Abstract:||Focuses on the potential negative impact of released transgenic artifacts on the genetic diversity of wild plant populations. Expresses the view that crops and companion weeds evolve together through an on-going exchange of genes and asserts that this leaves both crop and weed forms having the same, limited gene pool. Speculates that the insertion of a genetic modification that gives evolutionary advantage to a plant could transmit very easily to companion varieties and these would then be in a position to supplant wild, non-companion types that are the source of genetic diversity for the entire species.|
