Description/Abstract:
Correspondence describes studies on pine seedlingas as a biological check on the effectiveness of nuclear waste disposal at Maxey Flats, Kentucky. Also covers effects of Gamma radiation of tree seed on the radiosensitivity of the X-2 generation, a long-term study of trees Gamma-irradiated as seed or seedlings and planted in a secondary forest, seed radiosensitivity for eighteen deciduous tree species, and effects of physiological activity on tree seed radiosensitivity.
