In our previous works, we investigated various plant species using EPR spectroscopy. Our experimental research has had very important and relevant results. We have discovered new paramagnetic centers in plants under the influence of various stressors and have shown that the results obtained can be used as a bioindication parameter in environmental monitoring [1-4].
Currently, the object we are exploring is grape snails. EPR studies have shown that radiation plays a stimulating role in the creation of new paramagnetic centers in grape snails. This effect can be used as a bioindication parameter in environmental assessment of the environment.
Detection of paramagnetic centers in animal organisms can provide completely new biophysical and biochemical information. The results will allow us to gain a deeper understanding of the origin and role of biogenic paramagnetic centers in living systems.
