The protection of biota from ionising radiations needs reliable predictions of radionuclide dynamics in wild animals. Data specific for many wild animal – radionuclide combinations is lacking and a number of approaches including allometry have been proposed to address this. However, for C and H, which are integral components of animal tissues and their diets, a different approach is needed. Here we propose a metabolically based model which can be parameterised predominantly on the basis of… CONTINUE READING
