Changes in the biochemical composition of primary producers can alter their food quality, influencing their consumers and further propagating through the food web. Gamma (ɣ) radiation is an environmentally important type of ionising radiation as it can damage macromolecules such as DNA, proteins, and lipids due to its high frequency, short wave length, and high energy photons. Here, we investigate whether short-term ɣ-radiation changes the biochemical composition of primary producers and if… CONTINUE READING
