»» Radiation ecology (video)


Section “Radioecology” is devoted to the radiation effects on populations and ecosystems. The degradation of communities and formation of new species will be analyzed, the influence of environment on radiation effects will be discussed. The epidemiological data for different territories will be analyzed too
