Copplestone D, Howard BJ & Brechignac F (2004) The ecological relevance of current approaches for environmental protection from exposure to ionising radiation, Journal of Environmental Radioactivity, 74 (1-3), pp. 31-41.
This paper discusses the current approaches to environmental protection from ionising radiation from an ecological perspective, highlighting the need to understand fully what we are trying to protect. Ecologically relevant endpoints for environmental protection are discussed along with the need to integrate protection from ionising radiation with the approaches adopted for non-radioactive contaminants. A possible integrated assessment approach is outlined.
