There is general international acceptance of the need to demonstrate that the environment\ud is protected from ionising radiation. In some countries requirements and guidelines for the protection\ud of non-human biota are already in place. As a consequence a number of models and approaches have\ud been proposed for the estimation of the exposure of non-human biota to ionising radiation. The IAEA\ud EMRAS programme’s Biota Working Group has conducted the most comprehensive intercomparison of\ud the predictions of these approaches to date. In this paper, we present an overview of the activities of the\ud Biota Working Group concentrating on its conclusions and recommendations
