Use of higher plants in the biomonitoring of environmental genotoxic pollution.

Abstract

Genotoxicity is recognised as being the first step in carcinogenesis. Hence the identification ambient genotoxicity represents an important step in cancer risk assessment even if non-genotoxic mechanisms also occur. Genotoxicity can be assessed after exposure of populations to chemical or physical agents, as cytogenetic alterations, mutations or production… (More)
