The website above is just one of many that google will throw up if you type in/Chernobyl and wildlife.Please check others if you can find any that can give a better insight into the question below.

You will find that although there have been genetic mutations caused by radiation.The wildlife in the exclusion zone is prospering.It would apear that human beings are a bigger threat to wildlife than radiation.

I just wanted to hear peoples views on this and it's potential consequences for mankind in the event of a catostrophic Radiation incident.

I know a picture tells a thousand words but this one doesn't.What are you trying to say Stranger?

I'm looking at the long term consequences of radiation on the human race.

Very interesting, JB -- and kind of sad, really. When we were in Hawaii, I noticed how easy it was to find common, imported, adapted-to-city birds (pigeons and sparrows) and how hard it was to find native birds.

The sad fact is that though we saw imports (including the perky and spectacular cardinals (gray wings and back, white breast, red heads)) we did not see any native Hawai'ian birds.

Although we're amateur birders, I've noticed that we're not seeing a lot of bird diversity these days. (sigh)
