Chernobyl's legacy recorded in trees

5 posts in this topic

Exposure to radiation from the 1986 Chernobyl accident had a lasting negative legacy on the area's trees, a study has suggested.

Researchers said the worst effects were recorded in the "first few years" but surviving trees were left vulnerable to environmental stress, such as drought.

They added that young trees appeared to be particularly affected.

Chernobyl Study Reveals First Direct Evidence That Risk Of Thyroid Cancer Rises With Increasing Radiation Dose (2004)

Health effects of the Chernobyl accident: an overview (2006)

Researchers study cancer risks for Chernobyl survivors (2011)

The Chernobyl accident (2012)

As you can see there have been, and probably will continue to be, many studies on the effects of Chernobyl on the individual survivors. These four links are just the very tip of the iceberg.
