The workshop on Ecological Effects of Pest Resistance Genes in Managed Ecosystems was organized to promote multidisciplinary discussions that would lead to a synthesis of what we already know, and what we don’t know, regarding the environmental impact of pest resistant crops. In so doing, the workshop provided an opportunity to reexamine a key issue related to the responsible development and use of agricultural biotechnology products. The workshop focused on seven groups of crop species that have weedy relatives in North America: berries, certain grains and grasses, poplar, sunflower, squash, and Brassica species. A 13-member steering committee drawn from academic, private sector, and government institutions defined the objectives, identified plenary speakers, and nominated participants known to have expertise and interest in the subject.
