NOT AVAILABLE
The methodology and results of a survey of public attitudes in New Zealand to biotechnology, and in particular genetic engineering. The concern in these areas is shown to centre on moral and ethical implications of the research and on the possibility of environmental or human hazards resulting from the introduction of genetically modified organisms. In addition to the general survey of more than 200 people, the opinions of three more specialised groups which could influence public opinion on genetic engineering in New Zealand were sought. These groups were farmers, scientists and biology teachers
