To improve radiation dose prediction the CEC has initiated the post-Chernobyl radiation protection programme "Evaluation of data on the transfer of radionuclides in the food chain". This report describes five studies included in the programme. They were carried out by different laboratories and deal with the following: (i) impact of chemical speciation on the radionuclide transfer in terrestrial ecosystems after a core disruptive accident, especially in soils and plants; (ii) transfer paths of radionuclides in seminatural and natural ecosystems and their role in contaminating the food chain; (iii) validation of soil-to-plant parameters; (iv) transfer of radionuclides to animals and animal products; (v) transfer paths in aquatic systems and their importance regarding contamination of the food chain.
