Genetic modification (GM) of crops has been accompanied by concerns of environmental impact, including effects to beneficial organisms such as bees. Currently, most commercial GM crops are modified for pest and/or herbicide resistance. Transgenes such as Bt may be expressed in pollen, resulting in exposure to bees. However, studies to date indicate that crops transformed with genes coding for Bt proteins will not harm bees. Herbicide resistant crops are not likely to pose direct toxicity effects to bees; yet, greater weed control in herbicide resistant crops may be responsible for a lower bee.

Genetically modified crops (GM crops) are plants used in agriculture, the DNA of which has been modified using genetic engineering methods. In most cases, the aim is to introduce a new trait to the plant which does not occur naturally in the species. Examples in food crops include resistance to certain pests, diseases, environmental conditions, reduction of spoilage, resistance to chemical treatments (. resistance to a herbicide), or improving the nutrient profile of the crop.

Vector-mediated or indirect gene transfer Ti plasmid of Agrobacterium tumefaciens is used as a vector. Gene: gene is a portion (or sequence) of DNA that codes for a known cellular function or process.

Gene flow is not unique to genetically modified (GM) crops, but the possibility of the spread of transgenic DNA to wild and domesticated relatives raises a new set of issues for scientists and policymakers to consider. Unfortunately, we are still too often unable to quantify the risks of ecological damage associated with gene flow. This is due partly to the huge breadth of knowledge required to assemble a comprehensive risk assessment. Dr Guy Poppy, School of Biological Sciences, University of Southampton, UK.

Seed-mediated gene flow was not detected Gene Flow Out from the GE Planting. Pollen mediated gene flow outside of plot T0 was detected in 4 of 11 years (2000, 2006, 2007, 2008).

Seed-mediated gene flow was not detected. These results support the feasibility of coexistence of GE and non-GE plum orchards. Spatial modeling indicated that gene flow dramatically decreased at distances over 400 m from the GE plot. Air temperature and rainfall were, respectively, positively and negatively correlated with gene flow, reflecting the effects of weather conditions on insect pollinator activity.
