Abstract. To address the problem of the environmental impact of transgenic
crops, we start by studying the intra-specific competition between
the natural and transgenic variants of some particular species being
planted. We use analytical modeling to analyze the dynamics of the
production process. Analytical Trophodynamics (AT), based on
biological mechanisms, offers a powerful tool to analyze the
behavior of the system away from equilibrium points. AT together
with Diffusion Theory in Finsler spaces, provide an appropriate
mathematical framework for the study of ecological systems under the
influence of environmental changes, produced naturally or not.
