Vasyl Yoschenko, head of radioecological
monitoring at the Ukraine Institute of Agricultural Radiology, says that could benefit more radiation-tolerant species with significant forest-wide impacts: "If the Scots pine disappears, this will be a different ecosystem," he says.
Assessment of environmental impact by Ignalina NPP on radioecological
changes in Lake Druksiai--which is the Ignalina NPP cooling basin--was carried out (Silumine energetika 1989; Marciulioniene et al.
Other cooperation related issues were discussed today, including modernization of nuclear medicine, improvement of radiotherapy service, operationalization of a network of radioecological
monitoring and evaluation.
Several selection criteria have been applied, including radioecological
sensitivity (where in the environment exposure organisms are likely to receive highest internal and external doses), intrinsic radiosensitivity, amenability to research, and the requirement to represent various ecological niches.
