Pierre (and others who were interested in this thread recently):
The October, 1996 issue of BioScience (publication of the American
Institute of Biological Sciences), 46(9), page 665-673 has an interesting
article by Maurizio G. Paoletti and David Pimentel. "Genetic engineering
in agriculture and the environment: Assessing risks and benetits" has a
very extensive bibliography of more than 100 entries, by my rough estimate.
>I am giving lectures on transgenic plants. I know that some

>or canned tomato) are already on the market in USA and in UK.
>It is not the case in France yet. In order to show students
>that transgenic products are already for sale, I would like
>to show them concrete proof of it. I then would be very happy
>if somebody (from US or UK) could send me (by snail mail) a
>label of a product derived from transgenic plants, with
>the mention of the transgenic origin printed on it.
>Thank you very much in advance.
