Abstract or Summary
Concerns have been raised that multiple insecticidal proteins produced by genetically engineered (GE) crops may interact unexpectedly and pose new threats to biodiversity and nontarget organisms. We reviewed the literature to assess whether this concern is justified and whether the current regulatory framework needs to be adapted to address this concern.
Stacked Bt Proteins Pose No New Risks to Nontarget Arthropods (held on an external server, and so may require additional authentication details)
