Fauna of Vertebrate Animals of The Chornobyl Exclusion Zone (Ukraine)

Slavutych – Chornobyl 2006

The review of the species composition and data on the general state of vertebrates’ fauna in Ukrainian Chornobyl Zone at the end of ХХ- beginning of ХХІ centuries was presented. The complete list of vertebrate animals species living or existing within the territory of the Exclusion Zone was composed. Information on each species was considered. The information regarding the taxonomic diversity of vertebrates’ fauna, presence and modern state of Red Book species was summed up. The following conclusion was made: the Chornobyl Zone for any of several reasons should refer to one of the categories of the objects of natural-reserved funds of Ukraine and should be included into All-European ecology net due to the size (2500 km2) of its territory and diversity of animals species, taking into account the role of this region in life of many migrating animals species, and regarding the long-term reservation conditions.

The following are the areas to apply the research results: cenosis ecology, zoology, hunting, reserve and nature protection work.

Retrospective Dosimetry of Accident Remediation Personnel at the Chornobyl Nuclear Power Plant

Kyiv: Seda-Style, 1996

This monograph presents the first attempt to summarize the materials concerning the dosimetry aspects of accident remediation at Unit 4 in 1986: Implementation and results of individual dosimetric monitoring of accident remediation personnel in 1986, quality of individual exposure monitoring, and biodosimetric methods for retrospective reconstruction of the doses received by accident remediation personnel. Special attention is paid to describing a method for simulating the process due to which the radiation doses were received and to a detailed analysis of the results obtained with the help of this method. Unlike biodosimetric methods, this method makes it possible to obtain the time-differential radiation dose pattern; which, in fact, laid the basis for preparation of the materials used in this monograph.This monograph may be of interest to scientists and technicians involved in dosimetry, radiation protection, and radiation medicine, as well as for specialists of hygienic and epidemiological services.

Published with the support of the State Specialized Enterprise ‘Chornobyl Nuclear Power Plant’ and Stock Company ‘Institute for Fuel and Energy Sector Problems’.
