Question:Question: Summarise the points made in the lecture, being sure to explain how they cast doubt on specific points made in the reading passage.The lecture contradicts the view of the reading that there are several advantages of planting genetially modified trees. The lecture perfectly refutes the reading by putting forward three points.
To begin with, the reading claims that gennetically modified trees can survive better than the normal trees that are not genetically modified. However, the lecture argues that since the genetically modified trees exist in particular areas. And the genetic trees are uniformly, so once the climate or other favtors change sharply, the genetic trees will be wiped out completely. So it is not certain for genetic trees survive better than nomanl trees.
On top of that, the reading says that farmer will benefit financially form planting genetically modified trees. However, the lecture points out that since the genetic seeds si sold by the seed company, farmers who grow those genetic trees have to pay the seed companny a lot of money. So it be be more expensive for farmers to grow those genetic trees.
Finally, the reasding contends that using the genetically modified trees can decrease the expoiation of wild trees. since genetic trees are more aggressive than the normal trees and the genetic trees will compete withlocal nomal rees for the resourse, it affect the local normal trees.
