Abstract

While we think that environmental risk assessments of transgenic insect-resistant crops are important, we believe the paper by Lövei et al. (2009) advocates inappropriate summarization and statistical methods, a negatively biased and incorrect interpretation of the published data on non-target effects, and fails to place any putative effect into a meaningful ecological context. Such erroneous analyses do not serve the scientific or regulatory communities.
