ABSTRACT

Cytogenetic damages were studied in the root meristem cells of the common reed from the water bodies of the Chornobyl exclusion zone with different level of radionuclide contamination. The chromosomal aberrations rate and their range were analyzed. Frequency of chromosomal aberrations in plants from the water bodies within the Chornobyl exclusion zone exceeds frequency of spontaneous mutagenesis in hydrobionts 2−6 times and is in power dependence on the absorbed dose.
