Bioassay for assessing cell stress in the vicinity of radio-frequency irradiating antennas.
Published in: J Environ Monit 2011; 13 (7): 1890-1896
Aim of study (acc. to author)
Etiolated plants were grown in continuous darkness for five months and 1 g fresh weight of duckweed cultures was used for experiments. Each experiment was repeated six to eight times.
Distance between exposed object and exposure source
plants kept in continuous darkness; measurements made inside a residential home
A sham exposure was conducted.
- duckweed (Landoltia punctata (G.Meyer) Les & Crawford)
Main outcome of study (acc. to author)
Study funded by
Israel Science Foundation (ISF)
