Colorful birds were the most affected by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster
A study on the impact of radiation on different species of organisms, the birds appeared to be the most colorful was suffering from pollution after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.
The researchers who conducted the study to 1570 birds from 57 different types of different distances from Chernobyl to the preparation of four groups of birds in the forests shrank over Chernobyl, scene of the worst nuclear disaster in the world in 1986 more than other species.
The most affected birds are the birds which have feather red, yellow, and orange, as well as the bird that lays large eggs, also the birds that migrate long distances and the reason for that may be over-consumption of natural chemicals which resistance to radiation.
Dr. Timothy Moso environmental expert at the University of South Carolina, Said that "These are species that appear to be missing or decreased their numbers".
Dr. Moso added that these results confirm the results of a previous study of the swallows, which are being raised in pens in the Ukraine, which indicated that vulnerability to radiation varies from one type to another.
