This could significantly reduce the risk of spread of GM traits into native species. Many of these traits could simply be transferred from one crop variety into another or be accomplished by switching on or off genes already present in the plant. Such transformations are likely to be more acceptable to the public than moving genes between phyla. The consequences of short-circuiting genetic distance between species, which has been maintained over long periods of time and geographical isolation, are not yet well enough understood to be able to assess the risks (Johnson, 2000).
There is a danger of losing the food-chain links between native species and crop systems. This link is vital for preserving the function of biodiversity to deliver early warning of dangers in crops or the chemicals used to manage them. There is some evidence that the use of GM crops with insect resistance in North America is reducing the volume and frequency of pesticide use on cotton, maize and soybean (Wolfenberger and Phifer, 2000). In addition, the future development of new crops with improved tolerance to abiotic factors (such as drought, salinity, frost) and the advent of ‘pharmed’ crops used to produce vaccines and industrial products may also change cropmanagement practices.
