ASHLAND, Ohio — Ashland University’s Environmental Lecture Series, “Promises and Perils of Technology,” will continue at 7:30 p.m. April 10 as Allison Snow presents a lecture on an ecologist’s view of genetically modified crops.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held in the Hawkins-Conard Student Center Auditorium.
Why are genetically modified crops so controversial and what are their environmental risks? Genetic engineering is an incredibly powerful method for creating new and improved crops, and people disagree about how strictly this technology should be regulated. Snow will discuss possible ecological risks and benefits of growing these crops.
Snow is a professor in the Department of Evolution, Ecology and Organismal Biology
at Ohio State University. She studies the ecological impacts of genetically engineered crops on natural and agricultural systems.
