Dr. I. Lehr Brisbin, an ornithologist and professor emeritus at SREL, was active in studying the effects of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in the Soviet Union on the bird population and said that is another factor to be considered in the situation in Japan.
"We do know that there is a contaminated terrestrial area of land which they are starting to call the exclusion zone, which is very much like around Chernobyl," Brisbin said. "Birds don't read signs, so birds come and go. The one thing we learned at Chernobyl is you've got to know your birds and your migration patterns, or you can get it all wrong." Brisbin said he suspects that, over the next several months, migratory birds flying up the coast of Asia and probably toward Alaska might encounter contamination that could eventually lead to mutations in the species.
