Proceedings of the final research co-ordination meeting on Improving Sheep and Goat Productivity with the Aid of Nuclear Techniques, Perth, Australia, 20-24 February 1989, reporting the results of a five year co-ordinated research programme. The main objectives of this programme were (a) to encourage research aimed at establishing the nutritional value of locally available feedstuffs and assessing strategies for supplementation, and (b) to examine the reproductive patterns of small ruminants in different environments, with particular emphasis on the seasonality of ovarian and testicular function, and the effects of nutrition and disease on reproductive efficiency.
Proceedings of an Advisory Group meeting, Vienna, 17-21 November 1986. The need for plant produced industrial raw materials, as well as the fact that more and more people depend upon fewer and fewer plant species for their food, led scientists to consider the possibility of domesticating additional plant species, i.e. changing hitherto not cultivated plant species into crop plants. As spontaneous single gene mutations contributed substantially to domestication, experimental mutagenesis appears to be a promising tool to accelerate the process of domestication in new crop plants. The purpose of the meeting was to consider the possibilities and limitations of induced mutation technology for the purpose of domestication, to discuss the methodology, identify target species and define the character changes required.
The Government and authorities in Brazil were faced with a tragic accident in Goiania resulting from the misuse of a strongly radioactive medical teletherapy source not under radiation protection surveillance. The present report is divided into four parts: a chronology of destruction of the source, discovery of the accident and initial response; a description of the human consequences and the dosimetry and treatment of seriously exposed and contaminated persons; an account of the assessment of the environmental contamination and the remedial actions taken; and observations and recommendations. Appendices and annexes give an assessment of the effectiveness of international co-operation in the emergency response, and provide further information on: public communications; radiological survey equipment; guidelines for the discharge of patients; radiological protection; chemical decontamination; and the lessons learned.
Proceedings of a symposium, Hannover, Germany, 3-7 March 1986. The purpose was to review advances made in the area of siting, design and construction of underground repositories for radioactive wastes and to consider developments of future importance. Forty-nine papers were presented, covering general approaches and regulatory aspects, disposal in shallow ground and rock cavities, disposal in deep geological formations and safety assessments.
