Insect transgenesis promises improvements in agriculture, pharmaceuticals and public health. Many important insects can now be routinely transformed with effectors that have useful applications. Agriculture presents the largest market for transgenic insects and has a foundational history of success with sterile insect technique for control of pests including Mediterranean fruit flies and screwworms. Biotechnology will contribute superior markers, suppressible sterility and sex-conversion. Public health is also seeing transgenic mosquitoes developed which suppress natural populations and are incapable of transmitting disease. Experts in the field will contribute their insights into the latest technology and its applications. Authors will also consider the larger risks, social and economic aspects of transgenic insects whose value must be proven in political, regulatory and public acceptance arenas.

The book provides a fascinating overview about current and sophisticated developments in applied entomology that are powered by molecular biology and that can be summarized under a novel term: insect biotechnology. By analogy with the application of powerful molecular biological tools in medicine (red biotechnology), plant protection (green biotechnology) and industrial processing (white biotechnology), insect biotechnology (yellow biotechnology) provides novel tools and strategies for human welfare and nutrition. Insect Biotechnology has emerged as a prospering discipline with considerable economic potential, and encompasses the use of insect model organisms and insect-derived molecules in medical research as well as in modern plant protection measures.

This book introduces the lay reader to the ecological risks associated with transgenic organisms. Genetic engineering could make a valuable contribution within agriculture, although the initial promise of more abundant food, produced in an environmentally friendly manner, is not being fulfilled. Instead the technology is being promoted at the expense of sustainable alternatives that have fewer environmental and social costs.

INTERVENTION challenges two of the most sacred tenets of modern society, innovation and technology, from the perspective of the unique risks they present. Using genetic engineering as its model, it paints a vivid picture of the scientific uncertainties that biotech risk evaluations dismiss or ignore, and lays bare the power and money conflicts between academia, industry and regulators that have sped these risky innovations to the market. Intervention champions an alternative method for assessing the risks of technology, developed by the world's top risk experts, that can eliminate such conflicts, help regain public trust in science and government, and drive research and development toward more useful, safer products.

Much research effort is currently underway to improve and implement the area-wide control of insect pests, in order to minimize the use of pesticides and protect the environment. This volume is an outcome of two major international meetings, the FAO/IAEA International Conference on Area-Wide Control of Insect Pests, and the Fifth International Symposium on Fruit Flies of Economic Importance, both held in June 1998 in Penang. More than 300 pages were presented, but this volume includes the 91 considered the most valuable by an international review panel. Papers have been edited, revised and updated as necessary. Contributors include respected research workers from all over the world. The volume will be an indispensable reference volume for workers in agricultural, medical and veterinary entomology.

Transgenic crops are now grown in the USA and several other countries, and are now entering some of the developing countries. It was felt that few people in most of the Central American countries knew about the potential benefits and risks of the new technology of transgenic crops, so a workshop was held at the Panamerican Agriculture College in Honduras in May 1996. This publication sets out the presentations, discussion and recommendations of this regional workshop, with reference to cotton, maize and rice crops, legislation aspects and pest resistance management. The booklet with 11 chapters provides an interesting overview of the subject, which would be of interest to other areas of the world. (Review by G. A. Matthews, in: Crop Protection vol. 6, issue 5 (1997)p. 492)
