Adaptation of the gymnosperms to the conditions of irradiation in the Chernobyl zone: from morphological abnormalities to the molecular genetic consequences


The most suitable plant indicator targets for radiation pollution biomonitoring are conifers, because they have high radiosensitivity. Previously accumulated information about the genetic nature of morphological abnormalities in gymnosperms, induced by acute and chronic irradiation in the exclusion zone of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, are briefly… (More)
