Borchardt Library, Melbourne Bundoora Campus. It also provides some state-of-the-art economic analyses that attempt to shed light on some of the most controversial aspects of these technologies—such as their impacts on pesticide use and consequent environmental impacts, on the relationship between adoption of these technologies and changes in agronomic practices and ecological impacts, and on human health and changes in other sources of risk. Because the editor has effectively synthesized the findings of the various chapters in his concluding remarks, I do not feel it necessary to repeat that effort here.
I do want to point out the areas in which the book presents information on the frontiers of economic analysis of this topic and in areas where controversy still reigns and further analysis is needed.
The Economic And Environmental Impacts Of Agbiotech A Global Perspective
Most publications up to now have been US-centric in trying to deal with aggregate impacts of biotech, but a few studies have looked at aggregate impacts in other countries. Although a formal global impact analysis is still in the future, this book brings those country-level studies together, making it easier for the reader to compare them and to begin to form some ideas of the potential global effect.
This is a significant service to those of us interested in this topic and could lead to the first attempt at a global assessment. The first accountings of the farm-level nonpecuniary impacts of crop biotechnologies appear in this volume. The relationship between soil-saving production techniques and use of crop biotechnologies is studied in several chapters, using various state-of-the-art analytic methodologies.
The results are mixed.

Others conclude there is no relationship Fernandez-Cornejo et al. These analyses are based on different types of transgenic crops, different analytical techniques, and different datasets. Further independent study of this issue is called for, especially because claims have been made by the technology providers and others that some crop biotechnologies cause adoption of more reduced tillage practices.
This is contrary to the recent literature that warns of increased use of pesticides with crop biotechnologies, based on the "pounds on the ground" measure of pesticide use as a proxy for environmental impact. This result points to the need for more study of the measurement and ramifications of changes in pesticide use associated with these crops. Human health is another nonpecuniary aspect considered in this volume.

The first direct measurement of changes in farmer health associated with adoption of a crop biotechnology is reported by Pray and Huang in Chapter
