Biological Effects of Radiation

In this article we will discuss Biological Effects of Radiation

Biological Effects of Radiation

The effects of radiation have revealed that acute doses are found to be deleterious and
may kill the organisms, whereas the increase in radiation in biological environment leads to different kinds of mutations. The effects of Cobalt-60 or Cesium-137 gamma radiations have now been studied on communities and on ecosystems at different places. The research concludes that Irradiations eliminate varieties in species. The sensitivity of cells, tissues and organisms to radiation varies. The cells with larger chromosomes are more sensitive. Herbaceous communities and early stages of succession are resistant than the mature forest.
