The application of radionuclides to physiological studies of “wild” organisms can be classified into either of two categories based on the reason for the use of the radionuclide: (1) interest is not in the radionuclide per se, but only as it serves the purpose of identifying a labeled compound, e.g., tritiated water; and (2) interest is in the specific radionuclide or its stable form, e.g., the study of the biological half-life of the fission product 137Cs.
