Transgenic Trees

Until now the debate over genetically modified organisms – also known as transgenic organisms – has mainly focused on agricultural crops, and only to a much lesser extent on genetically modified trees. This is understandable, given that transgenic crops such as corn and soybeans are already being commercially grown and will be directly or indirectly eaten by human beings, posing a potential threat to their health.
