Radioecological Problems of Water Bodies in Ukraine

ABSTRACT

Both the accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant and routine operation of other nuclear power plants are the main sources of radioactive contamination of water bodies of Ukraine. The data presented deals with the radioactive contamination of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, as well as with the distribution of radionuclides, their migration through trophic chains, and the influence of radionuclides upon hydrobionts. Disruptions in the biological systems of different levels of organization occurring under the influence of intensive radioactive contamination of aquatic ecosystems are considered.
