Mutation processes in the natural populations of Drosophila and Hirundo rustica from Ukrainian radiation contaminated territories
[Free Full Text (pdf)]
Natural populations of Drosophila melanogaster and Hirundo rustica that reside at the territories with different levels of radioactive pollution were investigated. The levels of visible mutations, sex-linked mutations and gonad reduction of Drosophila and the rate of interphase markers of chromosomal instability in erythrocytes of birds were selected as parameters for population monitoring. The results point out to possible reverse dependence among the level of chromosomal instability of birds, the rate of lethal mutations in sex chromosome of Drosophila and the density of radioactive pollution.
