Bt Corn, Shiva's CV, Research groups


It is my understanding that only one of the several Bt corn varieties
available to farmers expresses Bt in high levels in its pollen. Further,
I believe that this particular variety is not a major one. Can anyone
verify this for me?

Assuming this is true, then any research that lumps all Bt corn into one
basket is inherently misleading. This further points up the importance
of assessing products on their individual merits rather than making
blanket statements based on prejudices about the method of developing
these products.


Subj: Vandana Shiva Curriculum Vita

From: Gordon Couger

I would like to find a copy of Vandana Shiva curriculum vita. I am doing
research on her background and work history as it relates to agriculture.
This is for an editorial in a farm magazine.

Information sought: I am trying to identify all research groups in the
U.S. that focus on Ag Biotech Policy issues. Does anyone on this list
belong to such an institute?
