Ionizing radiation is a strong mutagenic factor and, accordingly, elevated mutation rates would be expected in plants exposed to high chronic or acute radiation after the Chernobyl accident in 1986. Somatic mutations were analyzed in pines (Pinus sylvestris L.) planted before and after the Chernobyl accident and in control material of the same origin planted in sites with natural radiation. Microsatellites (SSRs) and amplified fragment-length polymorphisms (AFLPs) were investigated. The… CONTINUE READING
