本书展示了2010年3月在不来梅召开的第二届GMLS会议的会议成果，议题是“转基因作物的大面积种植”。此次会议是一个讨论“基因改造生物”（genetically modified organisms， GMO）的生态、农业和经济意义上的应用，以及展示其风险评估与控制的最新进展的平台。此外，会议还提出基于共生和保护自然的准则的实用方法，以及来自欧盟和其他国家的法律挑战。本书共收录了来自欧洲、中美、非洲以及俄罗斯等地区作者关于科学、管理和法理各个角度的论文。

Broder Breckling is Senior Lecturer at the University of Bremen and research scientist at the University of Vechta. He organised various research projects on ecology, risk assessment and modelling of genetically modified crops. Together with Richard Verhoeven, science journalist in Bremen, he initiated several publications and international conferences on GMO..
