The construction of a complex of flood protective dams on the left bank of the floodplain of the Pripyat river was responsible for changes in the hydrological regime of its water bodies, and also in the character of thickets of higher aquatic plants.
Results of the study of the content of 90Sr and 137Cs in higher aquatic plants made it possible to reveal the peculiarities of accumulation of radionuclides by various species of macrophytes, and also to distinguish those species of macrophytes which can be used as indicators of radioactive contamination. The peculiarities of accumulation of radionuclides by various species of higher aquatic plants can essentially influence their contribution to the total content of radionuclides.
