Chapter Summary

This bibliography contains a list of reference books, monographs and articles relating to genetically modified organisms. Products of modern biotechnology are generally referred to as "genetically modified organisms" (GMOs), "biotechnology products," or "living modified organisms" (LMOs). To address some of the problems raised by GMOs, concerned governments adopted the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety to the Convention on Biological Diversity in January 2000 under the auspices of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP). The Protocol entered into force on September 11, 2003. The Protocol is the first binding international agreement aimed at protecting biodiversity from risks posed by modern biotechnology, particularly the transboundary movement of what the Protocol refers to as LMOs.

Keywords: biodiversity; biosafety; Cartagena protocol; genetically modified organisms (GMOs); living modified organisms (LMOs); modern biotechnology; UN Environment Programme (UNEP)
