Competition with natural species
Adverse human and environmental effects
"Science enhances the moral value of life, because it furthers a love of truth and reverence -- love of truth displaying itself in the constant endeavor to arrive at a more exact knowledge of the world of mind and matter around us, and reverence, because every advance in knowledge brings us face to face with the mystery of our own being." Max Planck
INSERTION INDUCED TRANSFORMATION
Mutatons are the source of the variation on which natural selection operates during evolution and are ultamately responsible for the appearance of new species.
A New Form of Mutation
resistant to drought herbacides and incecticides
richer in nutrients or containing new vitamins and minerals
