GMOs: ambiguous environmentally

A new paper out by some folks in my old department looking at how GMO crops affect the environment in Brazil. Two types of GMO's are examined: those that have insect resistance built in and those that have herbicide resistance built in. The former ends up helping the environment while the latter doesn't. Perhaps unsurprising, but cool since it's based on both a model and some empirical data.
