Radioecology is a highly multidisciplinary scientific discipline situated at the crossroads between environmental radioactivity, whether natural or man-made, and its consequences on both, man and the environment. It deals with radioactivity as a stressor requiring risk assessment, but also as a tracer of biogeochemical and ecological processes.
With nearly 1000 registered members from 58 countries currently, IUR represents an authoritative source of information on all aspects of radioecology.

[ Following the 4th IUR Workshop (Stirling, Scotland - June 2018) ]
The fourth in the “Ecological risk assessment of environmental radioactivity” series of IUR-sponsored events took place in Stirling in June 2018. The aim of the Workshop was to bring together participants from the fields of low- and high-dose radiobiology and those working in radioecology to discuss the effects that low doses of radiation have on non-human biota.
