Scientists find wastes from transgenic Bt corn impair growth of common aquatic insect and call on future risk assessment to include aquatic ecosystems previously overlooked.
The researchers conclude that "widespread planting of Bt crops has unexpected ecosystem-scale consequences", and call on future assessment of potential non-target effects to be expanded to include relevant aquatic organisms such as stream insects.
