Abstract

Chernivtsi region, part of Northern Bukovina, is an attractive one for development of both national and international tourism. Investigation of radionuclide migration in “soil - wild berry plants” chain was carried out in our research project in order to check safety of forest berry products in Chernivtsi region. We established that content of radionuclide — 137Cs and 40K stayed within acceptable levels in blueberry and cowberry from Putyla district. Hence, all berries are safe and can be eaten both raw and processed.
