  1. Looking for moral responsibility in ownership: a way to deal with Hazards of GMOs

    Contributor(s):: Robaey, Z.

    Until now, the debates around genetically modified seeds in agriculture have converged towards two main issues. The first is about hazards that this new technology brings about, and the second is about the ownership of seeds and the distribution of their economic benefits. In this paper, I...

  2. The US' Food and Drug Administration, normativity of risk assessment, GMOs, and American democracy

    Contributor(s):: Meghani, Z.

    The process of risk assessment of biotechnologies, such as genetically modified organisms (GMOs), has normative dimensions. However, the US' Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seems committed to the idea that such evaluations are objective. This essay makes the case that the agency's regulatory...

  3. Threshold concentrations of an anthraquinone-based repellent for Canada geese, red-winged blackbirds, and ring-necked pheasants

    | Contributor(s):: Werner, S. J., Carlson, J. C., Tupper, S. K., Santer, M. M., Linz, G. M.

    Wildlife repellents provide a non-lethal alternative for managing the monetary impacts of agricultural depredation. For the purpose of developing of an effective avian repellent, we established repellency thresholds of an anthraquinone-based repellent for Canada geese (Branta canadensis),...

  4. Artificial illumination reduces bait-take by small rainforest mammals

    | Contributor(s):: Bengsen, A. J., Leung, L. K. P., Lapidge, S. J., Gordon, I. J.

    Small mammals often moderate their foraging behaviour in response to cues indicating a high local predation risk. We assessed the ability of cues associated with a high predation risk to reduce the consumption of bait by non-target small mammal species in a tropical rainforest, without inhibiting...
