The GeneRisk research consortium analysed the implications of the cultivation of genetically modified organisms (GMO). The risks involved transcend the borders of very different systems. Therefore, they need to be analysed using interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches. One central scientific issue was the assessment of the spatial implications of GMO cultivation for areas of large extent, examining Bt-maize as the currently most relevant GM crop and oilseed rape as an additional example.

More about this publication?
  • GAIA is a peer-reviewed inter- and transdisciplinary journal for scientists and other interested parties concerned with the causes and analyses of environmental and sustainability problems and their solutions.

    Environmental problems cannot be solved by one academic discipline. The complex natures of these problems require cooperation across disciplinary boundaries. Since 1991, GAIA has offered a well-balanced and practice-oriented forum for transdisciplinary research. GAIA offers first-hand information on state of the art environmental research and on current solutions to environmental problems. Well-known editors, advisors, and authors work to ensure the high quality of the contributions found in GAIA and a unique transdisciplinary dialogue – in a comprehensible style.

    GAIA is an ISI-journal, listed in the Science Citation Index Expanded, Social Science Citation Index and in Current Contents/Social and Behavioral Sciences.

    All contributions undergo a double-blind peer review.
