This issue discusses the impacts and possibilities for agrobiotechnology
in
less developed countries. The volume also includes our version of
"cross-fire" where Altieri & Rosset and McGloughlin address common
controversies surrounding biotechnology.  A table of contents is
attached
for your information.  I hope that you will find this issue a useful
resource.  If you have any specific questions please contact
