Summary "The principal idea behind this volume is to present, in a brief and systematic form, the results from researchers who observed and documented the consequences of the Chernobyl catastrophe. In our view, the need for such an analysis became especially important after September 2005 when the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) presented and widely advertised "The Chernobyl Forum" report [IAEA (2006), The Chernobyl Legacy: Health, Environment and Socio-Economic Impact and Recommendation to the Governments of Belarus, the Russian Federation and Ukraine 2nd Rev. Ed. (IAEA, Vienna): 50 pp.] because it lacked sufficiently detailed facts concerning the consequences of the disaster"--P. x
