TAIPEI, Taiwan--Animals exposed to even low doses of radiation suffer a higher incidence of physical abnormalities, a world-leading ecologist said in Taipei on Tuesday.

Timothy Mousseau, an ecologist at the University of South Carolina, is a pioneering expert on what radiation does to organisms. Their studies found that radiation exposure had significant effects on local populations, for instance causing tumors, small brain sizes, sterility and cataracts in birds in Chernobyl.

Findings indicate that radiation, even at low doses, can increase mortality rates and the incidence of physical abnormalities.

"There is no threshold below which there is no effect on organisms," Mousseau said.
