Excerpt

The editing of the following manuscripts has been a distinct pleasure, not only because of the material presented, but also because of the active cooperation of authors who condescended to follow the whims of the editors.

Further, we wish to acknowledge the enormous contribution from librarians and secretaries. Their effort has assisted us immensely in editing these proceedings. We are particularly indebted to Sarah Womack and Phyllis Horman.

Our guiding policy has been that the data and methods be presented in such a fashion that readers would be able to draw their own conclusions from these presentations. As a result, we strongly requested that a measure of variation and sample size be associated with all averages derived from the author's data and that conclusions resulting from statistical analyses be accompanied by descriptions of statistical procedures and results of the statistical tests, e.g., a complete analysis of variance table.

Except in a very few cases abbreviations were not used. We felt that such a procedure would assist non-radioecologists and foreign translators in reading the manuscripts.

Following submission of the manuscripts for editing, we requested that, where possible, issue numbers be included in the individual references. Because of the lateness of this decision on our part it was impossible to obtain all issue numbers. We acknowledge the effort expended by authors in fulfilling our request.

We hope that this modest beginning will inspire students to enter the challenging new field of radioecology and current radioecologists to fill some of the many obvious gaps in our knowledge of the fate and effect of radionuclides in man's environment.
