Surrogate Species Selection for Assessing Potential Adverse Environmental Impacts of Genetically Engineered Plants on Non-Target Organisms
Proceedings 1/1/2012
To help identify and address the challenges facing researchers studying the effects of genetically engineered insect-resistant crops on non-target organisms (NTOs), CERA hosted the conference "Surrogate Species Selection for Assessing Potential Adverse Environmental Impacts of Genetically Engineered Plants on Non-Target Organisms." The Conference was held in the Washington, DC office of the ILSI Research Foundation, June 26-28, 2012, and it brought together 37 government, university, and private industry scientists from around the world representing the fields of entomology, ecology, agronomy, chemistry, and ecotoxicology. Over the course of the three-day meeting, the participants reached consensus on selection criteria for surrogate species to be used in the testing of insect-resistant crops on NTOs. In developing these criteria, the participants focused on ensuring that NTO testing would be practicable, test results would be scientifically and statistically valid, and the data obtained would accurately predict any adverse impacts likely from the use of the crops. The proceedings of the Conference include the presentations, case studies, breakout and plenary discussions, and the points of consensus agreed to by the participants.
