[Natural background radiation: problem of radionuclide migration and biological effects].

[Article in Russian]


Natural radiation background is the main contributor to radiation dose delivered to plants, animals, and man. That is why its effects are of increasing interest in radiobiology, radioecology, and radiation hygiene. The following problems are discussed: migration of main natural radionuclides in biosphere, dose formation, biological role of natural radiation background on the Earth, standards for natural radiation background, and problems of natural radiation background and biosphere evolution. The tasks of further radiobiological research in evaluating the role of natural radiation background are outlined.
