Ecological Constraints on Genetic Engineering
The aim of this paper is to present, briefly to be sure, the views of a microbial ecologist with a strong practical bent. These views, I believe, have relevance to genetic engineering to control environmental pollutants. I shall point out several ways by which the chances of success can be increased and some of the problems that may be encountered.
