Chromosome translocations in turtles: a biomarker in a sentinel animal for ecological dosimetry.

Abstract

Nonhuman organisms are being exposed to ionizing radiations at radionuclide-contaminated sites around the world. Direct methods are seldom available for measuring biologically relevant doses received by these organisms. Here we extend biological dosimetry techniques, which are much better developed for humans and a few other mammalian species, to a… (More)
