Abstract

Ostroumov S. A. On the Multifunctional Role of the Biota in the Self-Purification of Aquatic Ecosystems. // Russian Journal of Ecology 2005. 36(6): 414-420. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/227317445 ; https://www.researchgate.net/publication/269092595 ; DOI: 10.1007/s11184-005-0095-x; Principles of the theory of the ecological mechanism of water self-purification based on multiple functions of the biota in freshwater and marine ecosystems are formulated. In developing this theory, the results of the author's experiments with filter-feeders (water filtering invertebrate animals, hydrobionts) have been used. These results indicate that the water self-purification mechanism is vulnerable to the impact of some pollutants and, in particular, synthetic surfactants. The conclusions drawn on the basis of the theory have practical significance for biodiversity conservation and for the sustainable use of the biological resources of aquatic ecosystems.

... Таким образом, в итоге вносился вклад в очищение водной среды от химических соответствующих элементов. Тем самым изучаемое явление вписывается в процессы самоочищения воды, охарактеризованные в публикациях[6][7][8][9][10][18][19][20][21][22][23][24][25]. Подчеркнем, что самоочищение от наночастиц имеет особенно важное значение, поскольку доказана токсичность ряда видов наночастиц – например[28,30]. ...
... 1. Полученные результаты на новых примерах (мортмасса широко распространенного вида водных макрофитов Myriophyllum aquaticum, химические элементы: палладий, скандий, цирконий, титан, церий, европий, индий, рутений, селен и уран) подтверждают, что мортмасса водных растений, входящая в состав природных экосистем, наряду с другими компонентами, может нести функцию депо или места, где происходит иммобилизации и секвестр химических элементов. 2. Новые факты, полученные в опытах, согласуются с теоретическими представлениями о полифункциональной роли биоты в самоочищении воды[6,[20][21][22][23][24]и о типологии вещества в биосфере[7][8][9][10]. Изложенные новые факты поддерживают выводы, сделанные в предыдущих статьях[33][34][35][36][37][38], подчеркивают актуальность исследований в области экотоксикологии и химико-биотических взаимодействий с участием токсичных веществ[5, 39-44].[9]). ...

The zooplanktons play an important role to study the faunal diversity of aquatic ecosystems. Zooplanktons also act as a pollution indicator in a water body. Zooplankton is the long-lived and mobile components of aquatic ecosystem. They are relatively easy to collectand identify to species level and are good indicators of pollution in any water body. Individual invertebrate species responddifferently to environmental changes. The present study was carried out for the periods of eight month at different fresh water bodies of Washim region like Ekburji dam, Keli dam, DevTalav, Padma Teertha. A total 27 zooplankton out of which 11 species of rotifers, 06 copepods, 09 cladocera and 1 ostracodswere observed.

Previously, toxicity of some synthetic detergents (including laundry detergents) to the plant seedlings of several species of terrestrial higher plants was discovered in research conducted at Moscow University by S.A.Ostroumov. A new example of toxicity of a laundry detergent to plant seedlings was found in this study. The synthetic detergent tested, namely the liquid laundry detergent (LLD) “Blue Moon”, which was manufactured by Blue Moon Group Co, Ltd (Guangzhou, China), produced noticeable phytotoxic effects on the plant seedlings of the terrestrial higher plant Lens culinaris. This detergent at the concentrations 0.5 % - 1% induced a pronounced decrease in the average root length of the seedlings of Lens culinaris. The concentration 5% was lethal to Lens culinaris. Keywords: ecotoxicity, detergent, bioassay, terrestrial higher plants, plant seedlings, root elongation, phytotoxicity, environmental toxicology, Lens culinaris

Fungi are important mediators of energy flow and nutrients because are excellent decomposers, active in biotic self-purification of aquatic ecosystems. Some species grow under adverse conditions of pH, conductivity and high concentrations of algal biomass. Studies have reported the isolation of cutaneous and systemic species of opportunistic human fungi from polluted freshwater. This work aimed to determine the fungal biodiversity in three eutrophic reservoirs in the Paraíba state, semi-arid northeastern region of Brazil. Over 12 months, physical, chemical and biological parameters of water quality were analyzed from three different sampling points in each reservoir. There were significant differences in water quality within and between reservoirs in times of drought and rainfall, indicating that seasonal climatic changes exert a strong influence over the dynamics and ecophysiology of these ecosystems. From a total of 132 water samples, 33 fungi taxa were isolated by the sample dilution and plating method, showing predominantly dematiaceous and hyaline Hyphomycetes, Coelomycetes, Zygomycetes and yeasts of which 13 were common in the three reservoirs. Taxonomic abundance and richness were higher during the rainy season in two of the three environments, all equally eutrophic. Canonical analysis showed the influence of macronutrients on fungal distribution.

Russian Journal of General Chemistry, 85(13), pp.2929-2932. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/292950214. The possibility of immobilization of scandium and other chemical elements by biogenic materials derived from an aquatic macrophyte was explored. The concentrations of scandium and some other chemical elements were measured in the dried biomass (mortmass) of aquatic plants Myriophyllum aquaticum. In the experiments, the mortmass was incubated in aquatic systems where some chemical elements were added to the aquatic medium. After the incubation, the concentrations of these chemical elements in the mortmass were measured using inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES), also referred to as inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES). Increases in the concentrations of scandium and some other chemical elements (Ce, In, Se, Ru, Pd, U, and Zr) were observed in the biogenic material.

An environmental capacity model for the petroleum hydrocarbon pollutions (PHs) in Jiaozhou Bay is constructed based on field surveys, mesocosm, and parallel laboratory experiments. Simulated results of PHs seasonal successions in 2003 match the field surveys of Jiaozhou Bay resaonably well with a highest value in July. The Monte Carlo analysis confirms that the variation of PHs concentration significantly correlates with the river input. The water body in the bay is reasonably subjected to self-purification processes, such as volatilization to the atmosphere, biodegradation by microorganism, and transport to the Yellow Sea by water exchange. The environmental capacity of PHs in Jiaozhou Bay is 1500 tons per year IF the seawater quality criterion (Grade I/II, 0.05 mgL−1) in the region is to be satisfied. The contribution to self-purification by volatilization, biodegradation, and transport to the Yellow Sea accounts for 48%, 28%, and 23%, respectively, which make these three processes the main ways of PHs purification in Jiaozhou Bay.

We formulated five proposals to improve specifications of flood hazard reduction projects and five proposals to preserve the river ecosystem functions, based on literature and authors’ experience. Starting from these, we established a conceptual approach using the notion of riverscape, with related function richness and bioassessment tools. We defined four riverscape types based on the gradient of artificialness, from type I (impervious bed) to type IV (less than 30% or no artificial bed). To apply our approach to dry dam designs, we individualized different parts of dry dams and characterized them by an ideal riverscape type, according to the hydraulic constraints of each part. Type I is unavoidable in the bottom outlet, and types I or II at the foot of the dam. Types III (30–50% of artificial bed) and IV were recommended at upper and lower parts of the dam, according to the risk of bank erosion and need for bank reinforcements. The approach appeared efficient to help biologists and hydraulic practitioners work together, and find technical solutions complying with both flood protection and biodiversity preservation requirement.

The ecosystem as a bioreactor has the following characteristic attributes: (1) it is a large-scale (large-volume) bioreactor; (2) it is a diversified (in terms of the number of taxa and the scope of functional activities) bioreactor; (3) it possesses a broad range of biocatalytic (chemical-transforming and degrading) capabilities. New experimental data on xenobiotics -induced inhibition of the water filtration performed by the molluscs Unio tumidus, U. pictorum, M. galloprovincialis and inhibition of feeding by Limnaea stagnalis emphasized the potential ecological hazard from sublethal concentrations of pollutants (including those exemplified by synthetic surfactants and detergents).

INTRODUCTION Priorities of ecological research include the further studies of ecosystem functioning (Ostroumov et al., [2003]) that include functioning towards water purification (the self-purification of water) in natural water bodies and streams. The self-purification of water in natural ecosystems is a complex group of processes which includes physical, chemical, and biological components (Sushchenya, [1975]; Alimov [ 1981], [2000]; Skurlatov, [1988]; Uhlmann, [1988]; Izrael, and Tsyban, [1989]; Ostroumov [1998], [2001], [2002b]; Wetzel [2001]). Although biological aspects of water self-purification are generally attributed to heterotrophic microorganisms, the other groups of organisms are also known to play a significant role in this process (Sushchenya, [1975]; Konstantinov [1979], Alimov [ 1981], [2000], Wallace, and Starkweather, [1985]; Vymazal, [1988]; Walz, [1995]; Monakov[1998]; Wetzel [2001]; also, Vinberg, [1973]; Bul'on, Nikulina, [1976]; Ivanova,[1976]; Khlebovich, [1976]; - cit. in Ostroumov, [2001]). The goal of this work was to analyze some data from the literature and our own experimental data on water self-purification under natural conditions and to formulate a fundamental concept of the aquatic ecosystem as an analog of a bioreactor (in a broad sense) that contributes to water self-purification mediated by main groups of aquatic organisms. This paper is based on some previous publications of the author (Ostroumov [2000c], [2001], [2002a]). 2. METHODS. The rate of water purification by macrozoobenthic filter feeders was measured experimentally as described earlier (Ostroumov [2001]). After the water sample had been kept with filter feeders for a certain time, the water filtration efficiency was monitored by the measuring the optical density of the suspension of unfiltered single - cell organisms that remained in the water column. The control samples of water were subjected to the same procedure of filtration, but without the contaminant (chemical) tested. Some other methods of the studies of the effects of contaminants on aquatic organisms are described in (Waterbury & Ostroumov [1994] , Ostroumov et al. [1997]). 3. ROLE OF THE MAIN GROUPS OF ORGANISMS IN THE BIOLOGICAL PROCESSES OF WATER PURIFICATION. Self-purification of water includes the following biological processes: (1) biodegradation of contaminants; (2) accumulation and sequestration of toxicants in aquatic organisms and the resultant removal of the toxicants from the water column (e.g. Vymazal, [1988]); (3) generation and emission of oxygen required for oxidative degradation of contaminants; (4) uptake of biogenic substances (including N and P) and organic substances from the aquatic environment; (5) production of exometabolites; (6) water filtration (Sushchenya, [1975]; Alimov [1981]; Wallace, and Starkweather, [1985]; Monakov [1998]); and (7) formation of pellet and detritus particles (e.g., Wotton et al. [1998]); and their sedimentation to the bottom (for review, see e.g., Konstantinov,[ 1979]; Ostroumov [1986], [1998], [2001], [2002b]; Skurlatov, [ 1988]). This list is far from complete, and some other biological phenomena simultaneously contribute to several processes listed above. Analysis of the relative contributions of individual groups of aquatic organisms to water self-purification as an integral function of an ecosystem (Table 1) shows that the main groups of organisms simultaneously contribute to several processes of the system of water self-purification. None of the main groups of aquatic organisms can be regarded as being insignificant in terms of water purification. The role of each group of aquatic organisms in these processes can be summarized as an integral ecological rating, which is calculated as the sum of the number of pluses in the corresponding row of Table 1. It is seen from Table 1 that this rating is sufficiently high in all groups of organisms. Thus, the whole range of biological diversity of aquatic organisms is an important factor in water self-purification (Sushchenya, [1975]; Alimov [1981, 2000], Wallace, and Starkweather, [1985]; Wotton et al. [1998]; Ostroumov [2001], Wetzel [2001]). The biota representatives of the water column, the entire ecosystem volume, the boundary regions of the ecosystem, and zones of contact between the ecosystem and its environment are involved in water purification. Activities of unicellular organisms (including those freely suspended in water, immobilized, and attached to various particles, surfaces, and substrates) (e.g., Inkina, [1988]) as well as of other aquatic organisms (e.g., Ostroumov [2001], Wetzel [2001]) suggest that an aquatic ecosystem may be regarded as a bioreactor (in a metaphorically broad sense; i.e., including biological, physical, and chemical aspects). However, unlike industrial bioreactors, such a broad-sense bioreactor has the following important features. 4. AQUATIC ECOSYSTEM AS A BIOREACTOR WITH SOME FEATURES. The first feature is a fundamental difference in the bioreactor size. The volume of technological bioreactors does not exceed a few hundred cubic meters, whereas the volume of natural ecosystems is significantly larger. For example, the volumes of lake and estuary ecosystems reach thousands of cubic kilometers: Lake Baikal, 22995 km 3 ; Lake Superior, 12221 km 3 ; Lake Michigan, 4871 km 3 ; Lake Issyk-Kul, 1730 km 3 ; Lake Ladoga, 908 km 3 ; Lake Onega, 280 km 3 ; Lake Balkhash, 112 km 3 ; and Lake Sevan, 38 km 3 ; (1 km 3 = 10 9 m 3 ). This increases the biospheric role of ecological, biochemical, and biofiltration processes in these systems. Therefore, the physical size and volume of the system within which water self-purification take place should be taken into consideration. Thus, natural ecosystems can be regarded as large-size (large-scale) analogues of bioreactors. The second feature is the differences (in terms of size and diversity) between the gene-pool of organisms inhabiting natural ecosystems and the genetic pool of organizms grown in technological bioreactors. This difference leads to a significantly larger diversity of functional activities of organisms in natural ecosystems. Technological bioreactors are usually inoculated with monocultures or, less frequently, mixed cultures with a small number of constituting species. In contrast to technological bioreactors, the biological diversity of natural ecosystems is substantially broader. According to some incomplete estimates, the number of species in natural ecosystems is as many as several hundred to several thousand (e.g., Konstantinov, [1979]). These estimates were obtained without regard to the number of strains of individual microbial species. If the prokaryote strains are taken into account, the quantitative estimates of the biological diversity of taxa in natural ecosystems may increase by several orders of magnitude. Third, an aquatic ecosystem is characterized by a higher degree of autonomy (including energy autonomy) than technological bioreactors. This autonomy is based on the presence of autotrophic organisms. Thus we suggest that natural ecosystems should be regarded as multispecies and diversified (i.e., based on the diversity of organisms and their functions) analogs of bioreactors, implementing a broad spectrum of catalytic functions (including transformation and degradation of contaminants). 5. MAN-MADE EFFECTS AND THE EFFECTS OF SOME XENOBIOTICS. Anthropogenic sublethal effects (including the inhibition of physiological activities) and behavioral changes in virtually any group or taxon of aquatic organisms may decrease the bioreactor efficiency. Some sublethal effects should be regarded as a potential hazard to the purification function (Ostroumov [1998], [2000a ], [2000b], [2002a]; Ostroumov et al. [1997], [1999 ] ). Because the main groups of macroorganisms and microorganisms play a substantial role in self-purification of ecosystems, it is very important to compare the sensitivities of the organisms to various contaminants. In some cases, macroorganisms are at least as sensitive (or even more sensitive) to contaminants as microorganisms (Table 2). According to the presently adopted regulation of ecological monitoring and bioassaying, the ability of chemical compounds to damage the self-purification potential of ecosystems is being tested using heterotrophic bacteria alone. However, it follows from Table 2 that this approach may result in an underestimation of the effects of contaminants on more sensitive biological components of self-purified ecosystems (e.g., some macroorganisms). We obtained new data on the ability of xenobiotics to inhibit water filtration by marine and freshwater organisms and on the hygienic function of pulmonary mollusks associated with elimination of organic matter (the removal of phytomass) from the water column in aquatic ecosystems (Table 3). Some sublethal concentrations of contaminants may inhibit vital activities of other organisms involved in the functioning of the ecosystem as an analog of a bioreactor (e.g., Ostroumov [2001], [2002a], Ostroumov et al. [1999]). 6. AQUATIC ECOSYSTEMS AS PART OF THE APPARATUS OF THE BIOSPHERE. V.I. Vernadsky considered the biota as the apparatus of the biosphere (Vernadsky, [2001]). To continue and develop his thought, we could consider aquatic ecosystems and aquatic biota as a key part of that apparatus. In that capacity, aquatic ecosystem carries a number of functions, not only the one function discussed above (water purification). Among those biospherically important functions are the following: (1) production of organic matter; (2) removing the excess organic matter; ( 3 ) mediating, catalyzing, and regulating biogeochemical flows and cycles; ( 4) harboring biodiversity and by doing so harboring the genetic pool of biodiversity; (5) providing links among various parts of the biosphere; ( 6) contributing to stability of the biosphere. 7. CONCLUSIONS. The fundamental concept put forward in this work emphasizes that both the biological diversity of aquatic organisms and their normal level of physiological activities are required to provide the effective functioning of an ecosystem as an analog of a bioreactor. That bioreactor carries a number of biospherically important functions and processes (we call them 'microbiospheric processes') including those of water purification (environmental remediation, ecological repair). This may lead to a deeper insight into the mechanisms of aquatic ecosystems and to better understanding of hazards of the anthropogenic impact on the biosphere (Yablokov, Ostroumov [1983], [1985], [1991]; Ostroumov [1986]; [Wetzel, 2001]).

Using the radioisotope method, new quantitative characteristics of the role of phytoplankton in the formation of the pool of dissolved organic substances (ROS) in the freshwater ecosystem were obtained. The destruction of dead phytoplankton is carried out within one week. In natural reservoirs, detritus settles at a rate of about one meter per day. In deep reservoirs, most of the MOAT is released in the water column rich in oxygen, where it is destroyed by bacterioplankton. In shallow reservoirs (such as fish ponds), detritus particles do not have time to decompose in the water column. Their further destruction is carried out at the bottom of the reservoir when there is a lack of oxygen, which leads to overseas phenomena.

This review investigates the current state of knowledge of the genus Isognomon with respect to different aspects of its biology, including taxonomy, morphology, ecology, life history, physiology, stress tolerance, diseases, contamination from environmental pollutants and their potential for use as bio-indicators. A total of 126 publications on the monophyletic genus Isognomon were identified in structured searches, with 30 reports on Isognomon ephippium, a reef-forming leaf oyster of potential interest for use in shellfish reef restoration programmes. Isognomon ephippium is the largest species in the genus, and occurs in an array of subtropical and tropical estuarine habitats such as mangroves, mudflats, sandy bottoms and rocks, where it can increase the architectural and biological diversity of the ecosystems. Isognomon spp. appear to have a low incidence of disease and have been used as bio-indicators in a range of environmental and contamination studies. For future use in shellfish restoration programmes, further information is required on the life history of I. ephippium, including age at sexual maturity, spawning times, fecundity and larval development, to facilitate spat production and supply. Further characterisation of the physiology and immune system of I. ephippium would facilitate future monitoring of the health of natural and restored populations.

The Brantas River that crosses several districts and cities in East Java province receives pollutant loads from various human activities along its watershed. On the other hand, the Brantas river is also used as a source of water from various human activities along the watershed. Naturally, the river has the ability to recover through physical, chemical and biological processes. The ability of river to recover from pollution can be seen from the rate of carbon deoxygenation. Therefore, conducted research to see the performance of Brantas river self-purification starting from upstream in the Pendem Batu Bridge to the downstream at Padangan Mojokerto Bridge with 11 (eleven) locations of water sampling. Carbon deoxygenation determination method using Thomas method. The results showed varying deoxygenation rates with a range of values 0.001 / day to 0.028 / day. The highest rate of Carbon deoxygenation lies in the sampling location at Kesamben Bridge Blitar and the lowest is at the location at Dinoyo Bridge Malang. Brantas river deoxygenation rates is lower than Metro river in Malang regency, Brantas river in Malang city, Citarum upstream river, Cikapundung river and Citepus river. So it is concluded that the Brantas river self-purification performance from Carbon deoxygenation rate is lower. Brantas river management efforts should consider this factor in the handling of organic pollutant sources. The wastewater quality standard that have the same value.

Dynamics of the Content of Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Carbon in the Detrital Particles Suspended in Water Phase of Ecosystems: Consideration of Water Quality Formation and Exometabolism. S. A. Ostroumov, and A. P. Sadchikov, Russian Journal of General Chemistry, 2018, Vol. 88, No. 13, pp. 2912–2917; https://www.researchgate.net/publication/331099556 ; The dynamics of the nitrogen, carbon, and phosphorus contents in the detrital particles suspended in the water column was examined. The study was carried out in two freshwater reservoirs of different trophic levels. Detritus was collected in natural aquatic ecosystems at various depths. The nitrogen, phosphorus, and carbon concentrations in the detrital particles were found to decrease significantly during the detritus sedimentation in the water column. This pattern was observed both for a mesotrophic reservoir and an eutrophic aquatic ecosystem. It was the phosphorus concentration that decreased especially rapidly during the sedimentation of the detrital particles in the water column. These findings were considered in the context of water quality formation. The new facts and their analysis advance our understanding of the most important functions of detritus in aquatic ecosystems; a new aspect of coupling of ecological and biogeochemical processes in aquatic ecosystems was revealed. The results were analyzed using the innovative scientific term, exometabolism, which was proposed by S.A. Ostroumov in his monograph "Aquatic Organisms in Water Self-Purification" in 2008.

The review covers new aspects of the participation of organisms in the detoxification system of the biosphere. Problems of detoxification of toxic environmental pollutants are analyzed. New author’s experimental data in combination with a large amount of information in the scientific literature gave rise to a new concept of the role of biogenic detritus and related nutrients in environmental detoxification (ex-living matter concept). This may be useful for the development of new technologies for remediation and decontamination of the environment.
Conference Paper
In these latter days it has become topical to reconsider, the technologies and practice of regulated for drainage purposes streams supervision, to find ways how to combine agricultural productivity and restore lost ecological balance at least partially. The article analyzes the influence of natural and regulated stream stretches on water quality and stream self-purification effectiveness. The analysis of nitrate concentration in water samples taken from natural and regulated stream stretches was conducted for the identification of water quality. Nitrate (NO3) concentrations and their alternation during different seasons were studied. The conducted analysis revealed that stream nitrate self-purification is better in natural stream stretches. An average coefficient of self-purification recorded in the course of the research in natural stretches was 0.57, whereas in a regulated stretch – 0.09. On purpose to improve surface-water quality and self-purifi-cation effectiveness it is suggested to naturalize regulated stream stretches, to allow woody vegetation grow on slopes, to encourage meandering, pools and shoals forming processes in floodplains.

This fundamental and innovative article was cited and commented favorably by scientists in many countries, and inter alia, by Professor V.A. Abakumov (2013), the leading expert in aquatic ecology in Russian Federation, and Chair, Department of Ecology, an international university in the Moscow Region. A Diploma (Academy of Water Sciences) – a certificate of high scientific quality - was awarded to the series of publications (on ecology, environmental science) including this article: http://5bio5.blogspot.com/2014/07/award-july-1-2014-to-series-of.html; ABSTRACT: A fundamental concept is proposed of aquatic ecosystem as a bioreactor that carries out the function of water purification in natural water bodies and streams. The ecosystem as a bioreactor has the following characteristic attributes: (1) it is a large-scale (large-volume) bioreactor; (2) it is a diversified (in terms of the number of taxa and the scope of functional activities) bioreactor; (3) it possesses a broad range of biocatalytic (chemical-transforming and degrading) capabilities. New experimental data on xenobiotics-induced inhibition of the functioning of the molluscs Unio tu- midus, U. pictorum, M. galloprovincialis and Limnaea stagnalis emphasize the potential ecological hazard from sublethal concentrations of pollutants (including those exemplified by synthetic surfactants and detergents). Keywords: environmental hazards, man-made impacts, anthropogenic effects, pollutants, xenobiotics, aquatic ecosystems, water purification, water filtration, bivalves, surfactants, detergents, biosphere, Mytilus galloprovincialis,

Suspension-feeding animals are common macroscopic inhabitants of hardand soft-bottom habitats in shallow coastal waters. Many forms aggregate on specific bottom types where they take advantage of the free-energy subsidies provided by waves, tides and wind-driven currents that transport oxygen and particulate food to them, carry away waste, disperse larvae, and exclude predators. Because these organisms can move and process large amounts of material between the water column and the bottom, they are often major agents of benthic-pelagic coupling and nutrient cycling (Dame 1996; Wildish and Kristmanson 1997). As a group, they have been promoted as system filters or cleaners because of their suspension-feeding abilities (Newell 1988). Some reef builders are advocated as erosion-control mechanisms (Kirtley and Tanner 1968). All of these functional roles imply that benthic suspension feeders play a significant part in the overall functioning of many shallow coastal systems.

Ostroumov (Moscow University), Introduction to Biochemical Ecology (Moscow University Press, Moscow, 1986, 176 pages) - is a really innovative, insightful, useful book ahead of its time. It is the first book on the subject of biochemical ecology in the world scientific literature including scientific publications in the U.S.A., Russia, U.K., Germany, France, Japan, Australia, and other countries. This book created a new science of biochemical ecology. The book covers two major areas of biochemical ecology: (1) natural chemicals that are produced by organisms and involved in interactions among organisms; (2) biochemical transformation of xenobiotics and chemical pollutants. The book formulated new useful and fundamental concepts and proposed new terminology, e.g. ecological chemomediators and ecological chemoregulators. It is the first book that formulated a list of biospheric and ecological functions of natural chemicals produced by organisms. A new concept of the biosphere as an ecological-biochemical continuum was proposed. The book was translated into Polish and Bulgarian. A new, second edition of this book was published in Russian under the title 'Introduction to Problems of Biochemical Ecology' (Moscow, Nauka Press, 1990). This unique, useful, valuable, book is an excellent contribution to ecological sciences.

It was shown that the chemical inhibited the removal of suspended matter from water during water filtering by mussels. It was concluded that the chemical inhibited water filtration rate by the mussels. The results are in accord with previous findings on effects of other xenobiotics and pollutants on filtration rate by bivalves. The similar inhibition by xenobiotics and pollutants was shown by the author for both marine (Ostroumov, DAN, 2001, vol. 378, No. 2., p. 283-285) and freshwater (Ostroumov, DAN, 2001, vol. 380, No. 5., p. 714-717) molluscs. The results demonstrate a new type of ecological hazard from water pollution when the polluting chemicals may uncouple the link between from the pelagial part of the ecosystem and its benthal part, i.e. pelagial-benthal coupling].

The author made an innovative analysis of his experimental data and formulated the following fundamental principle: to maintain water quality, it is vital to protect the functionally active biodiversity of water ecosystems. In other words, according to the author’s new concept, the protection of functionally active biodiversity, including filter-feeders, is a key to maintenance of water quality. This concept was supported by many facts obtained in experiments of the author and reported in his previous publications. This article presents new facts in support of his concepts. Among new facts obtained and reported in the paper: a chemical pollutant (exemplified by the synthetic detergent IXI, at a sublethal concentration 20 mg/L) inhibited water filtration by the aquatic bivalve mollusks, marine mussels Mytilus galloprovincialis (3-25 min, 18 pro mille, 22.8ºC). Another synthetic detergent (exemplified by the laundry detergent Deni-Automat), at a sublethal concentration 30 mg/L, also inhibited the water filtration by the marine bivalves oysters Crassostrea gigas (2-40 min, 25.2ºC).]. These new data as well as the other related data obtained by the same author and reported in his other publications, supported the author’s fundamental concept.

Ostroumov S.A. Some aspects of water filtering activity of filter-feeders. - Hydrobiologia 2005. 542(1): 275-286. January 2005; https://www.researchgate.net/publication/226902807; DOI: 10.1007/s10750-004-1875-1; On the basis of the previous publications, our new data and the existing scientific literature, we have formulated some fundamental principles that characterize the pivotal roles of the biodiversity of filter-feeders in ecosystems. Among those roles are: (1) the role of ecological repair of water quality, (2) the role of contributing to reliability and stability of the functioning of the ecosystem, (3) the role of contributing to creation of habitat heterogeneity, (4) the role of contributing to acceleration of migration of chemical elements. It is an important feature of the biomachinery of filter-feeders that it removes from water various particles of a very broad range of sizes. Another important principle is that the amount of the organic matter filtered out of water is larger than the amount assimilated so that a significant part of the removed material serves no useful function to the organism of the filter-feeder, but serves a beneficial function to some other species and to the ecosystem as a whole. The new experiments by the author additionally demonstrated a vulnerability of the filtration activity of filter feeders (e.g., bivalves and rotifers) to some xenobiotics (tetradecyltrymethylammonium bromide, heavy metals and some others). The inhibition of the filtration activity of filter-feeders may lead to the situation previously described as that of an ecological bomb of the second type.

Abstract: In the paper, the author proposed a new approach and methodology to analyze the key ecological issue, namely, the interactions between organisms in ecosystems. The new methodology proposed is inhibitory analysis. The author applied this approach to analyze trophic chains: the top–down control of plankton by benthic filter-feeders. This control, as the author’s experiments have shown, might be removed by chemical inhibitors (the latter may enter the ecosystem as pollutants). As an example, the author gives the results of his experiments on how ecotoxicants exemplified by synthetic surfactants [tetradecyltrimethylammonium bromide (TDTMA)] and synthetic detergents inhibited the control of plankton (Monochrystis lutheri) by marine mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis). The method was successfully applied to innovatively analyze the factors that are among causes of eutrophication. Among new facts discovered and presented in this article: the cationic surfactant TDTMA (1 mg/L ) inhibited the filtration rate of juveniles of marine bivalves (marine mussels Mytilus galloprovincialis), and the removal of cells of the algae (Monochrysis lutheri) from water (50 min, 26˚C).

Ostroumov S.A. Inhibitory analysis of top-down control: New keys to studying eutrophication, algal blooms, and water self-purification. Hydrobiologia; 2002. 469:117-129; https://www.researchgate.net/publication/200587396 ; This is a well-cited publication. Top-down control is an important type of interspecies interactions in food webs. It is especially important for aquatic ecosystems. Phytoplankton grazers contribute to the top-down control of phytoplankton populations. The paper is focused on the role of benthic filter feeders in the control of plankton populations as a result of water filtering and the removal of cells of plankton from the water column. New data on the inhibitory effects of surfactants and detergents on benthic filter-feeders (Unio tumidus, U. pictorum, Mytilus galloprovincialis, M. edulis and Crassostrea gigas) are presented and discussed. Importance and efficiency of that approach to the problems of eutrophication and water self-purification is pointed out. Chemical pollution may pose a threat to the natural top-down control of phytoplankton and water self-purification process. The latter is considered an important prerequisite for sustainable use of aquatic resources.

Ostroumov S.A. Polyfunctional role of biodiversity in processes leading to water purification: current conceptualizations and concluding remarks.- Hydrobiologia, 2002 (February), 469: 203-204. DOI10.1023/A:1015555022737; http://www.springerlink.com/content/hcrfvmdncdm8e3pf/ Key words: water quality, water purification, self-purification, biodiversity, pollutants, ecosystem services, freshwater, marine, aquatic ecosystems, sustainability; Sustainable use of aquatic resources is based on the ability of aquatic ecosystems to maintain a certain level of water quality. Water self-purification in both freshwater and marine ecosystems is based on a number of interconnected processes (e.g., Wetzel, 1983; Spellman, 1996; Ostroumov 1998, 2000). Among them are: (1) physical and physico-chemical processes, including: (1.1) solution and dilution of pollutants; (1.2) export of pollutants to the adjacent land areas; (1.3) export of pollutants to the adjacent water bodies; (1.4) sorption of pollutants onto suspended particles and further sedimentation of the latter; (1.5) sorption of pollutants by sediments; (1.6) evaporation of pollutants; (2) chemical processes, including: (2.1) hydrolysis of pollutants; (2.2) photochemical transformations; (2.3) redox-catalytic transformations; (2.4) transformations including free radicals; (2.5) binding of pollutants by dissolved organic matter, which may lead to decreasing toxicity; (2.6) chemical oxidation of pollutants by oxygen; (3) biological processes, including: (3.1) sorption, uptake and accumulation of pollutants by organisms; (3.2) biotransformations (redox reactions, degradation, conjugation), mineralization of organic matter; (3.3) transformation of pollutants by extracellular enzymes; (3.4) removal of suspended matter and pollutants from the water column in the process of water filtering by filter-feeders; (3.5) removal of pollutants from the water in the process of sorption by pellets excreted by aquatic organisms; (3.6) uptake of nutrients (including P, N, and organic molecules) by organisms; (3.7) biotransformation and sorption of pollutants in soil (and removal of nutrients), important when polluted waters are in contact with terrestrial ecosystems; (3.8) a network of regulatory processes when certain organisms control or influence other organisms involved in water purification. Living organisms are involved in physical, physico-chemical and chemical processes 1.1-1.6 and 2.1-2.6 directly or through excretion of oxygen or organic metabolites, production of suspended matter, affecting turbidity, temperature of water or other parameters of the ecosystem. As a result, living organisms are the core component of the multitude of processes of the ecological machinery working towards improving water quality. This component performs eight vital functions directly (3.1-3.8) and is involved indirectly in some of the other twelve functions (1.1-1.6 and 2.1-2.6) so that its role is clearly polyfunctional. Living organisms of aquatic bodies (both autotrophs and heterotrophs) are enormously diverse in terms of taxonomy. Among them, autotrophs generate oxygen that is involved in the processes 2.6 and 2.4 above. Heterotrophs perform processes 3.1, 3.2, 3.4, 3.5 and some others. Virtually all biodiversity is involved. Given this polyfunctional role of aquatic organisms, in one of our publications we compared aquatic ecosystems to 'large-scale diversified bioreactors with a function of water purification' (Ostroumov, 2000). What is interesting about the biomachinery of water purification is the fact that it is an energy-saving device. It is using the energy of the sun (autotrophs) and the energy of organic matter which is being oxidized in the process of being removed from water by heterotrophs. Some interesting examples of how various organisms are incorporated in that polyfunctional activity were given by authors of the preceding papers in this volume. The importance of aquatic organisms in performing key functions in the hydrosphere provides an additional convincing rationale for protecting biodiversity. The efficiency of the entire complex of those processes leading to water purification in ecosystems is a prerequisite for the sustainable use of aquatic resources. Man-made effects on any of those processes (we have shown effects of surfactants on water filtration by bivalves; some of the experiments were carried out together with Dr. P. Donkin) may impair the efficiency of water self-purification (Ostroumov, 1998; Ostroumov et al., 1998; Ostroumov & Fedorov, 1999; Ostroumov 2001a, 2001b). We postulate and predict that further studies will provide new striking examples of how important biodiversity is in performing many vital ecological processes leading to upgrading water quality. By doing so, the multifunctional participation of biodiversity supports the sustainable use of water as one of key resources for mankind. The body of new data and ideas presented in this volume will hopefully serve towards following interconnected and partially overlapping goals: prioritization of efforts on research and management in the area of aquatic resources and aquatic environment; biodiversity studies and protection; sustainable use of aquatic bioresources; advancement of aquaculture and mariculture; decreasing costs and increasing efficiencies in wastewater treatment using ecosystems; combatting eutrophication; understanding the role of biota in biogeochemical flows of chemical elements and in buffering global change.

Original Russian Text Copyright © 2002 by Ostroumov S.A.; As a result of the author’s studies of filter-feeders (DAN, 1998, Vol. 362, P. 574-576; DAN, 2001, Vol. 378, P. 283-285), it is clear that the filtering activity of populations of filter-feeders in natural habitats might be significantly reduced if the concentrations of some pollutants reach certain levels. The role of filter-feeders as factors of water purification in ecosystems is so important that their inhibition is a danger for the entire ecosystem. The author emphasizes that not only the biodiversity of filter-feeders but also their level of functional (filtration) activity is to be protected. In order to do so, the author suggested establishing a new type of protected areas whose main purpose is to protect functionally active populations of filter-feeders, including bivalves and other organisms. Those protected areas could be named hydrobiological (some variants: biofiltering, or malacological) reserves (some variants: refuges, sanctuaries, etc.)]. The author formulated 5 principles of nature conservation requirements in malacological and hydrobiological reserves (Tabl. 3). Among them is principle 2, "conservation of filtration activity of organisms and populations". The paper contains data on how 5 detergents (1-50 mg/L) inhibited the filtration activity of Unio tumidus, Mytilus galloprovincialis, Crassostrea gigas (Tabl. 2); on effects on the efficiency of elimination (EEE) of suspended matter from water were measured (Tabl. 2); on the number of days (0.3 – 10) needed to filter the volume of aquatic (freshwater and marine) ecosystem by the local bivalves (a review of data from literature) (Tabl. 1). "I suggest that the existing system of protected terrestrial and water areas should be supplemented with special sites intended to conserve populations of filter-feeders. In addition to biodiversity conservation, these populations should be conserved because they fulfill a very important biogeocenotic function of water filtration and purification" (p.149). "The system of five principles…is proposed to provide an ecological basis of the environment conservation conditions at these sites (malacological and hydrobiological reserves)" (p.149).].

Article
In acute tests of toxicity, two cladocerans,Daphnia galeata mendotae andCeriodaphnia lacustris, and the calanoid,Diaptomus oregonensis, were more sensitive to fenvalerate thanDaphnia magna, the organism used in standard laboratory bioassays. The 48-hr EC50s for each species/stage in order of increasing sensitivity were adultD. magna — 2.52 μg/L;D. magna (≤48-hr old) — 0.83 μg/L; adultD. galeata mendotae — 0.29 μg/L; adultC. lacustris — 0.21 μg/L;D. galeata mendotae (≤48-hr old) — 0.16 μg/L; adultDiaptomus oregonensis — −0.12 μg/L. No toxicity was observed when these organisms were exposed to a range of concentrations of the emulsifiable concentrate without fenvalerate (the EC blank). Rates of filtration of the14C-labelled alga,Chlamydomonas reinhardii byD. galeata mendotae, C. lacustris andD. oregonensis were decreased significantly at sublethal concentrations of fenvalerate after only 24-hr exposure.Ceriodaphnia lacustris showed the greatest sensitivity with rates of filtration significantly decreased at 0.01 μg fenvalerate/ L. Concentrations of fenvalerate ≥0.05 μg/L resulted in decreased rates of filtration byD. galeata mendotae. A concentration of 0.10 μg fenvalerate/ L caused rates of filtration to increase inD. oregonensis. whereas 0.05 and 0.5 μg/L resulted in a decrease in these rates. Rates of assimilation of algae byD. galeata mendotae, C. lacustris andD. oregonensis exposed to similar concentrations of fenvalerate were decreased at concentrations ≥0.05 μg fenvalerate/L. Changes in rates of assimilation were not as sensitive a parameter of toxicity as changes in rates of filtration. The EC blank had no significant effects on rates of filtration or assimilation for all three species.

Biological filtering and ecological machinery for self-purification and bioremediation in aquatic ecosystems: towards a holistic view. Rivista di Biologia. 1998. 91(2): 221-232. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/13429633 ; According to one of the approaches to the definition of criteria for the phenomenon of life, the key attribute is the ability of the system for some self-regulating and self-supporting. Part of such holistic functions of aquatic ecosystems as self-regulating and self-supporting is their cleaning the water via a multitude of various mechanisms. The goal of this paper is to present some fundamental elements of the theory of ecosystem self-purification which emphasizes the importance of the four functional biological filters that are instrumental in purification and upgrading the quality of water in aquatic ecosystems. These functional filters are: (1) direct water filtering by aquatic organisms that are filter-feeders; (2) the filter (represented mainly by communities of aquatic plants/periphyton) which prevents input of pollutants and biogenic elements (N, P) from land into water bodies; (3) the filter (represented by benthic organisms) which prevents re-entry of pollutants and biogenic elements from the bottom sediments into the water; (4) the filter (represented by microorganisms attached to particles which are suspended in the water) that provides microbiological treatment of water column. New experimental data by the author reveal the role of man-made effects on the ecological machinery which purifies water. The analysis and discussion lead to the holistic theory of the natural process of bioremediation of aquatic ecosystems.

Among them is principle 2, "conservation of filtration activity of organisms and populations". The paper contains data on how 5 detergents (1-50 mg/L) inhibited the filtration activity of Unio tumidus, Mytilus galloprovincialis, Crassostrea gigas (Tabl. 2); on effects on the efficiency of elimination (EEE) of suspended matter from water were measured (Tabl. 2); on the number of days (0.3 – 10) needed to filter the volume of aquatic (freshwater and marine) ecosystem by the local bivalves (a review of data from literature) (Tabl. 1). "I suggest that the existing system of protected terrestrial and water areas should be supplemented with special sites intended to conserve populations of filter-feeders. In addition to biodiversity conservation, these populations should be conserved because they fulfill a very important biogeocenotic function of water filtration and purification" (p.149). "The system of five principles…is proposed to provide an ecological basis of the environment conservation conditions at these sites (malacological and hydrobiological reserves)" (p.149).].

It was shown that even some relatively mild influences on organisms of two adjacent trophic levels may eventually produce a synergistic, pronounced and definitely undesirable effect which will lead to an abnormal increase in the abundance of organisms of one of the trophic levels. The concrete examples of that type of synergism were found when anthropogenic impacts affected the organisms of two adjacent trophic levels (bivalves and algae). Some new bioeffects of the action of the synthetic detergent (exemplified by the laundry detergent, namely, the detergent 'Vesna') (1 mg/l) on the bivalves, oysters Crassostrea gigas were described. Also, some new effects of the detergent (exemplified by the laundry detergent, namely, the detegent 'IXI') (10 mg/l) on the marine mussels Mytilus galloprovincialis, were found; also, new effects of the detergent (exemplified by the trade markTide-Lemon) (50 mg/l) on M. galloprovincialis were discovered. ** CONCLUSION: The hazard of simultaneous influence of contamination of environment (e.g., by detergents) on organisms of the two trophic levels may occur when the polluting chemicals produce effects on algae and bivalves that are filter-feeders. It means that a new type of environmental hazards was discovered.
