There'll Always Be an England For the Good of Mankind Professor Mark Winston's lucid new book As the issue confronts the whole of the planet, this book deserves to be as big a seller as any Harry Potter adventure. The interested parties have entrenched themselves so deeply that the public has become very confused This is an excellent account of where GM stands both in the developed and developing world.
Mark Winston has managed to clear a lot of the mystery and confusion so that readers will be able to debate the issues involved in a much more informed way.

Winston bases this broad-ranging book solidly on the literature but also on interviews with farmers, activists, industrial workers, and publicists The facets of genetic modification he takes into account include research, industrial processes, growing modified crops, protecting nearby crops, the safety of consumers, and the profits of agribusiness. He is especially instructive on the use of patents, the control of seeds, and the technical-use agreements that companies force farmers to sign.
The book isn't just reportorial, though, for Winston also fields practical ideas for solving the major problems involved in the rapidly-growing field of genetically modified crops. Throughout, however, he maintains a moderate stance on his controversial subject. He admits that as a scientist he was "enthralled" by science's newfound ability to take a gene from one species and insert it into the DNA of another living thing. Visitation by wild and managed bees hymenoptera: apoidea to eastern U. Environ Entomol. The circe principle explains how resource rich land can waylay pollinators in fragmented landscapes.
Travels in the Genetically Modified Zone : Mark L. Winston :
The role of crop-pollinator relationships in breeding for pollinator-friendly legumes: from a breeding perspective. Stability of pollination services decreases with isolation from natural areas despite honey bee visits. Pollination reservoirs for wild bee habitat enhancement in cropping systems: a review.
Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems. Pollinator population size and pollination ecosystem service responses to enhancing floral and nesting resources.
Ecol Evol. Experimental evidence that wildflower strips increase pollinator visits to crops. The study was conducted on agricultural fields north of Fort Collins, Colorado on two m 2 rectangular 80m x 50m plots of land, located about 6. The pollinator habitat consisted of a mixture of native wildflower species supplied by Applewood Seed company, Colorado chosen specifically to flower in the first season, and oats Avena sativa , to help in plant stand establishment and minimize weed pressure.
Attracting native pollinators: protecting North America's bees and butterflies. Canola Brassica napus L. Plants produce bright yellow bisexual flowers, borne on vertical flowering stalks, with new flowers opening at the top as older, fertilized flowers develop into pod like fruits called siliques. Flowers have 6 anthers all of which mature simultaneously, shedding pollen on the day the flowers open.
Attributes of Individual Flowers of Brassica napus L. Ann Bot Lond. The phenology of gender in homogamous flowers: temporal change in the residual sex function of flowers of Oil-seed Rape Brassica napus. Functional Ecology. Pan traps for collecting bees within the canola fields allowed for sampling while avoiding damage to flowers. Comparative trapping efficiency to characterize bee abundance, diversity and community composition in apple orchards.
Ann Entomol Soc Am. The pan trap triplets were placed in metal collars that were tied onto 1. Measuring bee diversity in different european habitats and biogeographical regions.
Critical perspectives on genetically modified crops and food
Ecological Monographs. Elevated pan traps to monitor bees in flowering crop canopies. Entomol Exp Appl. To sample the range of bees flying at different times of the day, pan traps were deployed at two different times. Pan trapping in each location during the daytime and overnight, was done three times during the canola bloom.
Collections in the pollinator habitat were performed by targeted netting as the habitat had plants of varying heights and the flowering times across species was not always uniform. Bees foraging on the wildflowers were captured in nets using quick sweeping motions for a period of 1—2 minutes between h and h.
Travels in the genetically modified zone
Three weekly samplings were completed in the pollinator habitat to keep the sampling effort similar to that in canola fields. Netting locations were chosen randomly ensuring that they were spread out through the entire wildflower strip.
Sampling effort was adjusted so as to obtain collections that approximately matched the bee foraging activity in the habitat. At the end of the netting period, bees trapped within the net were visually separated from flies and lepidopterans and carefully moved into kill jars — glass vials containing a piece of cotton fabric soaked in ethyl acetate.
