The University of Wisconsin's Why Files (first mentioned in the August 9, 1996 Scout Report
) has a recent in-depth feature that explores issues surrounding the creation of new agricultural plant varieties, with an emphasis on genetic engineering. The Web site consists of straightforward pages of text and photographs that relate the past, present, and possible future of plant breeding and genetic engineering. Visitors may click on numerous links to access related Why Files stories or relevant information from elsewhere. The site also contains a bibliography compiling paper and electronic references for anyone wishing to learn more about the topic. In all, this Web site quickly but effectively conveys a sense of the questions and concerns raised by this topic.
