I have just been reading this excellent question and answer about cockroaches ability to withstand ionizing radiation. My question is an extension of that question: aside from insects, which other animals (if any) have an increased defence against ionizing radiation?

Are there species of plants, fungi, and bacteria also "immune"?


According to Paul Stamets, Gomphidius glutinosus is especially well suited to collecting Cesium-137:

G. glutinosus has been reported to absorb - via the mycelium - and concentrate radioactive Cesium 137 more than 10,000-fold over ambient background levels.

That article and Stamets' book Mycelium Running have more details on other species.
