Chernobyl; The disaster zone becomes a laboratory

Willey, Neil


Neil Willey
Professor in Env Plant Physiology


Zapping plants with radiation might not initially appear useful, however Prof Neil Willey from the University of the West of England monitors the responses of plants under conditions similar to those at the infamous Chernobyl site, and for good reasons. The nuclear waste generated from the 439 on-grid nuclear power stations worldwide has yet to find a permanent home, and we must understand the effects that leaks from such a repository could have in the environment, as well as the other effects that this primordial biological stressor might have.
