A new international research paper presents and discusses issues involved in developing an ecosystem approach for environmental radiation protection.
This is an output that presents the results of discussions at a workshop held as part of the International Congress of Radiation Research (Environmental Health stream) in Manchester in 2019. This workshop aimed to provide a platform for radioecologists to engage with radiobiologists to address major questions around developing an Ecosystem approach in radioecology and radiation protection of the environment.
This is an international collaboration between academics from the UK, Canada, Germany, USA, Russia, Norway, Hungary, France, Japan and Belgium. One of the authors is Professor Awadhesh Jha of the University of Plymouth, which is an academic member of the South West Nuclear Hub.
