Study Shows Possible Long Distance Viability of GM Tree Pollen

A recent study has shown that tree pollen may have the ability to travel or drift long distances and still be able to germinate. This may have implications US Department of Agriculture may approve the development of transgenic trees. The long distance viability of germination for tree pollen may pose a problem in trying to contain the spread of future genetically modified trees in the future if and when they get USDA approval in the future.The new research involved the study of tree pollen from …
