Research outputpeer-review


Aseptic plantlets of Lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) growing in test tubes on agar medium were submitted to single acute doses (2000, 4000 and 6000 rad) of gamma radiation. According to the series of plantlets, the radiation treatments
have been made at different times, and the observations were taken during
a long vegetative period .
The following points have been taken into account : the effects
of irradiation on the growth of the plants (aerial part and root system) ; the effects on the physIoIogicaI condition of the plantlets ;the effects on the number and characteristics of nodules induced by Rhizobiim neliloti.The most important observations are summarized in two tables.
