US Food Security and Climate Change: Agricultural Futures
Journal Article 2/22/2013
Open access article on the possible impact of climate change on food security through 2050.
Potential Release Scenarios for Carbon Nanotubes Used in Composites
Journal Article 5/23/2013
The expected widespread use of carbon nanotube (CNT)-composites in consumer products calls for an assessment of the possible release and exposure to workers, consumers and the environment. Release of CNTs may occur at all steps in the life cycle of products, but to date only limited information is available about release of CNTs from actual products and articles.
Surrogate Species Selection for Assessing Potential Adverse Environmental Impacts of Genetically Engineered Insect-Resistant Plants on Non-Target Organisms
Journal Article 1/1/2014
Most regulatory authorities require that developers of genetically engineered insect-resistant (GEI R) crops evaluate the potential for these crops to have adverse impacts on valued non-target organisms (NTOs), i.e., organisms not intended to be controlled by the trait.
Genetically Engineered Trees for Plantation Forests: Key Considerations for Environmental Risk Assessment
Journal Article 8/5/2013
Forests are vital to the world’s ecological, social, cultural and economic well-being yet sustainable provision of goods and services from forests is increasingly challenged by pressures such as growing demand for wood and other forest products, land conversion and degradation, and climate change.
Climate Adaptation Imperatives: Global Sustainability Trends and Eco-Efficiency Metrics in Four Major Crops – Canola, Cotton, Maize, and Soybeans
Journal Article 10/20/2013
Supplying our world’s growing nutrition needs in more sustainable ways has become an urgent global imperative, given the constraints of finite resources and the challenges of accelerating climate change.
Environmental Risk Assessment of GE Plants Under Low-Exposure Conditions
Journal Article 5/31/2013
This paper presents some relevant considerations for conducting an ERA for a GE plant in a low-exposure scenario in the context of the generalized ERA paradigm, building on discussions and case studies presented during a session at ISBGMO 12.
Does Increased Prescribed Exercise Alter Non-Exercise Physical Activity/Energy Expenditure in Health Adults? A Systematic Review
Journal Article 4/3/2014
Prescribed physical activity/exercise training may reduce non-exercise physical activity resulting in no change in total daily energy expenditure and no or minimal exercise-induced weight loss.
Childhood Obesity: Partnerships for Research and Prevention
An ILSI Research Foundation 2002 monograph explores the rationale for a preventative approach to childhood obesity.
