International conference on Implications of GM-Crop cultivation at large spatial scales (GMLS 2008)
Ecological, agricultural and economic implications of geneticallyÂ modified (GM) plants on large spatial scales are currently discussedÂ in science, administration, and in the context of agriculturalÂ practice. It is still controversial how effects with great spatialÂ extent can be assessed in risk analysis, in the approval procedure,Â in the planning of co-existence measures, and in post marketÂ monitoring. The conference aims at compiling methods and strategies,Â which address the issues related to large scale cultivation of GMÂ plants. Topics include empirical work related to risk assessment,Â theoretical concepts, as well as methodological aspects such asÂ modelling and data analysis facing large spatial and temporal dimensions.
