the reading and the lecture are both about using Genetic modification to improve trees, however, the author of the reading illustrates the benefits of planting genetically modified trees in withstanding adverse condintions, growing faster and giving more products, the lecturer disputes the main ideas mentioned in the reading by explaining the disadvantages of this type of trees: first of all, according to the passage, genetically modified trees are more resistant to adverse conditions. they are designed in such a way to be hardier. for example, the genetically modified papaya trees can not be threatened by the ringspot virus infection anymore. on the other hand, the lecturer argues that genetically modified trees are merely resistant to one particular condition, and if something challenging threatens them and they can not tolerate it, all of them probably wipe out as a result of uniformly genetic modification. for instance, if some new pest invade them or big climatic changes take place, all of them destroy because of having the uniformly genetic modification. secondly, the author of the reading states that genetically modified trees bring more advantages for farmers. they grow faster and give greater products and yields of food, therefore, they have more benefits economically but the lecturer believes that they have hidden costs for farmers. the farmers have to more charge the company for seeds and they must pay the company every time collect the food. finally, the author of the reading suggests that genetically modified trees can compensate for the overexploitation of wild trees. indeed, the great demand for firewood and building timber can be satisfied by genetically modified trees because of their fast growth, and in this way, we can save the native trees. On the contrary, the professor says that genetically modified trees can invade wild trees and compete with them in the sources because of their fast aggressive growth. in addition, she explains they deplete the whole sources as a result of their fast growth and can threaten the native trees.
