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.
