Since radioactivity can be used to trace environmental processes in humans and other biota, Tropical Radioecology offers examples of studies in which radiotracers have been used to assess biokinetics in tropical biota.

Key Features

  • Features chapters, co-authored by world experts, that explain the origins, inputs, distribution, behaviour, and consequences of radioactivity in tropical and subtropical systems.
  • Provides comprehensive lists of relevant data and identifies current knowledge gaps to allow for targeted radioecological research in the future.
  • Integrates radioecological information into the most recent radiological consequences modelling and best-practice probabilistic ecological risk analysis methodology, given the need to understand the implications of enhanced socio-economic development in the world’s tropical regions.

Description

Tropical Radioecology is a guide to the wide range of scientific practices and principles of this multidisciplinary field. It brings together past and present studies in the tropical and sub-tropical areas of the planet, highlighting the unique aspects of tropical systems. Until recently, radioecological models for tropical environments have depended upon data derived from temperate environments, despite the differences of these regions in terms of biota and abiotic conditions. Since radioactivity can be used to trace environmental processes in humans and other biota, this book offers examples of studies in which radiotracers have been used to assess biokinetics in tropical biota.

Readership

Nuclear laboratories; environment and health departments of countries with tropical regions or responsibilities; health physicists; international NGOs; nuclear reactor engineering firms; mining industry, particularly U-mines, mineral sands mining, mines with NORMS or generating TENORMS; environmental pathway modelers; biokineticists; general and tropical ecologists
