Description/Abstract:
ATTEMPTS TO ASSESS THE RELATIVE HAZARDS (OR LACK OF HAZARDS) ASSOCIATE D WITH PLUTONIUM DISSEMINATION TO THE ENVIRONMENT EMPHASIZE THE NEED F OR QUANTITATIVE DATA TO RESOLVE THE MANY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS REGARDIN G ENVIRONMENTAL PLUTONIUM BEHAVIOR. THIS REVIEW SUMMARIZES MOST OF THE AVAILABLE DATA ON PLUTONIUM IN NATIVE TERRESTRIAL PLANTS AND ANIMALS AND DISCUSSES SOME OF THE KNOWN AND SPECULATIVE MECHANISMS BY WHICH PL UTONIUM MOVES INTO BIOTA. FACTORS WHICH REQUIRE CONSIDERATION IN PREPA RING ENVIRONMENTAL PLUTONIUM SAFETY EVALUATIONS ARE DISCUSSED.
