On the honeybee resistance to gamma radiation; Sur la resistance au rayonnement gamma de l'abeille ouvriere

Technical Report:

Abstract

The honeybee, when irradiated by gamma radiations from a cobalt-60 source can stand a 18000 r dose without any apparent harm. Noticeable harm is observed for 90000 r. while immediate death of 100% of the individuals is obtained with a 200000 r dose. The physiological condition of the honeybee plays an important role in its resistance to gamma radiation. Reprint of a paper published in Annales de l'abeille, IV, 1959, p. 285-290 [French] L'Abeille butineuse irradiee par le rayonnement gamma issu d'une source de Cobalt 60 supporte sans dommages apparents une dose de 18000 r. Des dommages tres appreciables sont observes pour 90000 r. Une dose de 200000 r entraine la mort immediate de 100% des individus. L'etat physiologique de l'Abeille joue un role important dans la resistance au rayonnement gamma. Reproduction d'un article publie dans Annales de l'abeille, IV, 1959, p. 285-290.
