This paper reviews the research status and future potential for studies concerned with the effects of ionizing radiation on plants at the organism, population, community and ecosystem levels. Opportunities for future development in this field are considered; including experimental techniques and methods for irradiation, dosimetry data retrieval and analysis systems, organisms, homeostatic mechanisms, prediction of radiation effects, physiological stimulation, catastrophic effects of ionizing radiation and effects of continuous low-level irradiation.
