Abstract

In the second half of 20th century, electromagnetic fields have become the important subject of many research papers in biomedicine. In fact, with technological development and global use of all electrical appliances, as well as informatic equipment,started also research of the electromagnetic fields effects on biological systems. One of the main characteristics which defines electromagnetic field is its frequency or adequate wavelength. We can divide them by their frequency, to extremely low electomagnetic fields (ELF-EMF), intermediate fields (IF) and high or radiofrequency fields (RF). In this seminar paper, a short review of studies of response of organisms on electromagnetic fields exposure, beginning with prokaryotic organisms, has been presented. All research models have different responses because of difference in their physiology, but we can notice stress effects in all model organisms. Although detrimental effects on many organisms were found, an environmental threat is probably not significant. Especially for the higher organisms which can easily change their position and are not permanently exposed to strong electromagnetic fields.
