The Ministry of the Environment of Japan revealed abnormalities in a population of one species of pine trees around the affected nuclear power plant in FUKushima. The Ministry is conducting a study of about 80 species of wild animals and plants around nuclear power since 2011, when Japan experienced the most serious nuclear accident. The results indicate that in a population of one species of conifers investigated in this area revealed a significant increase in the number of morphological defects including lack of apical shoots into the main branch of the barrel. The study found defects in 98% of all such trees growing within a radius of 3.5 km from the stricken nuclear power plant. The radiation level in the area is about 34 microsieverts per hour. These results indicate that the cause of these morphological abnormalities could be the emission of radioactive material after the nuclear accident. It is reported that the relationship between such defects and radiation are still unclear and that further research is needed. The ministry said that so far has found no abnormalities in other studied plants and animals.
