- One of the primary concerns about the environmental risks of genetically modified (GM) crops is that they may have
adverse effects on the local arthropod communities. In this study, we investigated whether the arthropod diversity and community
structure in fields of GM rice tolerant to protoporphyrinogen oxidase (PPO)-inhibiting herbicides differ from those in non-GM (control)
rice fields. The aim of this study was to assess the potential adverse effects of GM rice on the local arthropod communities. During the
growing seasons in the study period, we collected arthropods from both fields by using yellow sticky traps and compared the diversity
and community structure of arthropods from the two sites. Overall, the GM rice had no significant effect on the diversity of the local
arthropod communities. In addition, multivariate analyses (permutational multivariate analysis of variance and nonmetric
multidimensional scaling) showed that the structures of arthropod communities were not affected by the rice genotype (GM vs.
non-GM), although these comparisons were made using data obtained at different sampling dates.
