Abstract

WE have previously reported on the early recovery behaviour of Pinus thunbergii trees which were exposed to 715 rads of acute γ-radiation1,2. This communication is a report on the later recovery behaviour of the same trees during the first and second growing seasons after irradiation, and on similar trees subjected to 1,000 rads.
