Radioecology group goes to Madison, WI for the 58th Annual HPS Meeting

Welcome to the Oregon State University Radioecology Group Webpage!

Radioecology is the study of behavior and effects of radioactive elements in the environment. This can be broken into three subdivisions: radionuclide movement within ecological systems and accumulation within specific ecosystems components such as soil, air, water, and biota. Second, the effects of ionizing radiation on individual species, populations, communities, and ecosystems. Third, the use of radionuclides and ionizing radiation in studies of structure and function of ecosystems and their component subsystems. Radioecology is a highly multidisciplinary scientific discipline that draws on expertise from many fields of study. We invite you to find out more by reading through our ongoing work section, or taking a look at some of our publications. If you have any questions please contact us, our information is below.
