The thesis contains a literature review, three research chapters and a concluding chapter in which I make specific recommendations on management practice to minimize gene flow where necessary. The Literature review contains four subsections that have been or are in the process of publication. In this chapter, all figures and tables are contained within the text to maintain an easy reading style. The research chapters are written in article format and the figures and tables have been placed after the reference list. When reading this thesis you will experience some repetition between the introductions in the different research chapters – the reason for this is to place each research question within the correct context. Furthermore, the soybean research on potential pollen-mediated gene flow and pollen-mediated gene flow has been combined into one chapter. However, I felt that the corresponding chapter for maize was too cumbersome, in terms of the volume of data, and have separated these aspects into distinct chapters.
