Researchers in the US have found new evidence that genetically modified crop plants can survive and thrive in the wild, possibly for decades.

They suggest GM traits may help the plants survive weedkillers in the wild.

The findings were presented at the annual meeting of the Ecological Society of America in Pittsburgh.
