      Genetically Engineered Marine Organisms: Environmental and Economic Risks and Benefits provides a comprehensive, multidisciplinary overview of the environmental, economic, and regulatory implications of advances in marine biotechnology. The book has been specifically designed to bridge the gap between the rapidly advancing marine biotechnology industry and the government agencies that are. Modern biotechnology has extended humans' manipulation and modification of biological resources for a range of purposes. New techniques (many of a molecular nature) have enabled the development and commercialisation of novel products. For example, the generation of plants with desirable traits (increased grain yield or resistance to disease), the use of bacteria for the.

      Environmental Biotechnology: A Biosystems Approach, Second Edition presents valuable information on how biotechnology has acted as a vital buffer among people, pollution, and the environment. It answers the most important questions on the topic, including how, and why, a knowledge and understanding of the physical, chemical, and biological principles of the environment must be achieved in. It is not, however, a simple question of benefits and risks, since the debate over crop biotechnology raises at least seven overarching and interacting issues 1: Environmental issues - gene transfer to wild relatives, potential for superweeds, impact on natural fauna and flora, pest resistance etc.

      Environmental Biotechnology - New Approaches and Prospective Applications. Edited by: Marian Petre. ISBN , PDF ISBN , Published Cited by: 4. Environmental biotechnology in particular is the application of processes for the protection and restoration of the quality of the environment. Environmental biotechnology can be used to detect, prevent and remediate the emission of pollutants into the environment in a number of ways. ADVERTISEMENTS: Solid, liquid and gaseous wastes can be.

Providing a comprehensive framework for a sustainable governance model, and how to leverage it in competing global markets, Governance, Risk, and Compliance Handbook presents a readable overview to the political, regulatory, technical, process, and people considerations in complying with an ever more demanding regulatory environment and achievement of good corporate governance.

So, environmental pollution, including soil, air and water get reduced with the help of biotechnological approach. But there are also many potential risks involved in using biotechnology in agriculture for both human health and the environment.

Going further, when dealing with Environmental Biotechnology, tests run on animals to benefit the same species in the wild might be more justifiable ethically than tests run to benefit humans.-Risks to Environment and Biodiversity: Like any experiment, there will most likely be risks to the test subjects; which is, in this case, our environment.

Opening with an overview of environmental biotechnology, and a review of the key aspects of microbiology upon which the field is based, the book goes on to explore the diverse way in which biotechnology is applied to tackle environmental problems and issues, from monitoring of the environment and treatment of waste, to the removal of pollutants Author: Alan Scragg.

Potential impacts on the environment from the escape or release of genetically engineered organisms was the committee’s greatest science-based concerns associated with animal biotechnology, in large part due to the uncertainty inherent in identifying environmental problems early on and the difficulty of remediation once a problem has been identified.

Environmental Biotechnology was conceived after scanning the available literature in the area, which indicated that references in the subject are scanty and highly sporadic.

This book provides comprehensive information on the different aspects of environmental biotechnology and also discusses the processes and new technologies dealing with pollutants, degradation and resource recovery.5/5(2).Get this from a library!
