Publication 1. Innovative conceptualization of ecosystem’s biomachinery (a new scientific term that was proposed by the author; it means ecological mechanisms that include biological communities and biodiversity) which improves water quality. The innovative experimental data analysis, concepts, and generalizations in this article provide the fundamental elements of the new qualitative theory of biocontrol of water quality in a systematized form. The theory covers water self-purification in freshwater and marine ecosystems. Publication 2. This paper is the first publication that reported the concentrations of a number of rare earth elements in biodetritus. Publication 3.

The paper explained the new scientific terms (ecological chemomediators, ecological chemoregulators) that were coined in 1986 in the book S.A.Ostroumov ‘Introduction to Biochemical Ecology’. Publication 4. This article provides the fundamental elements of a new qualitative theory of biocontrol of water quality in a systematized form. The theory covers water self-purification in freshwater and marine ecosystems. Publication 5. Ostroumov S.A., Widdows J. Inhibition of mussel suspension feeding by surfactants of three classes. HYDROBIOLOGIA, 2006, Volume: 556, Pages: 381-386. The first paper that reports experiments that showed that all three main kinds of synthetic surfactants (detergent chemicals) slow down the filtration of water by marine organisms, filter-feeders (the bivalve mussels of Atlantic Ocean, the Latin name Mytilus edulis). Publication 6. 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. A detailed well-structured presentation of the author’s innovative and multifaceted conceptualization of how almost all aquatic organisms work together toward making water clear and clean. This paper formulated a new theory of ecological self-purification of water Publication 7. Ostroumov S.A. Some aspects of water filtering activity of filter-feeders. HYDROBIOLOGIA, 2005, Volume: 542, Pages: 275-286. New concepts and terminology were introduced in the paper: ecological tax; ecological repair of water quality. Opinion paper. Also, a review paper. Publication 8. Opinion paper: A detailed analysis of the discovery and innovation: a new aspect of the identity of ecosystem was discovered and analyzed. The paper showed that ecosystem has attributes of a bioreactor. It is considered as a large-scale diversified bioreactor with a water self-purification function. Publication 9. New facts on how detergents slow down the filtration of water by aquatic organisms (bivalve mussels, oysters and others).

New criteria in order to answer the question was formulated in this paper: is a given chemical substance hazardous to the environment or not? This paper formulated a fundamentally new solution to the problem of selecting criteria for identification and assessing environmental hazards of chemical pollutants, toxicants. Publication 13. It is the first article in which the new experimental results of the author were analyzed to give a new fresh insight into ecological mechanisms of eutrophication and abnormal increase in phytoplankton. Also, a new insight into how ecosystem runs water selfpurification. Publication 14. The first publication in which a concise outline was made of the author’s innovative theory of water self-purification. A short list of physical, chemical, and biological processes of water self-purification is given. Publication 15. It is the first paper in which it was clearly proved that the synthetic chemical (exemplified by the surfactant sodium dodecylsulfate, SDS), when it pollutes water, produces a dangerous effect on both marine mussels ( Mytilus edulis ) and phytoplankton. Publication 16. This paper formulated a fundamentally new solution to the problem of selecting criteria for identification and assessing environmental hazards of chemical pollutants, toxicants. The paper explains why the currently accepted set of criteria is non-efficient and leads to mistakes. Publication 17. It is the first paper in which a synthesis of both authors new experimental data and international literature was made, which led to a new broad picture of the fundamental role of biological filtering in self-purification ( and self-bioremediation, self-organization, as well as stability) of aquatic ecosystems. Publication 18. The first paper to report hazardous effects of a widely-used chemical on diatom algae, important component of phytoplankton. This is a first publication to report a hazardous effect of a synthetic non-ionic surfactant (exemplified by Triton X-100) on diatom algae, a marine species, Thalassiosira pseudonana. Publication 19. This is a first publication to report both inhibitory and stimulation effects of a synthetic surfactant on two unique strains of the ocean species of cyanobacteria Synechococcus from the collection of WHOI. These data demonstrated a new hazard of an imbalance of species composition of marine phytoplankton under the effect of pollution by synthetic chemical pollutants Publication 20. What is new: a polymeric chemical inhibited growth rate of plant seedlings. The first publication to report phytotoxicity of a synthetic polymeric surfactant. An innovative bioassay with the higher plant Fagopyrum esculentum (buckwheat) was carried out. A negative reaction of buckwheat seedlings to pollution of the aqueous medium with a polymeric surfactant was discovered.

Publication 21. The first paper to report new phytotoxic effects of a liquid detergent. Before this paper, no phytotoxic effects of liquid detergents were known. New phytotoxic effects of the liquid detergent "Vilva" on the seedlings of the higher plants, buckweat Fagopyrum esculentum and rice Oryza sativa, were discovered. Publication 22. This publication reported the author's unique experience in using non-traditional nonanimal methods to bioassay the toxicity of chemicals. His experiments discovered new facts on toxicity of synthetic surfactants and detergents to a number of species, e.g. to some higher plant species and algae. Publication 23. A discovery of a new method to do the bioassay of chemicals; discovery of a new form of phytotoxicity of chemicals, exemplified by some synthetic surfactants. Publication 24. A review of the two classes of chemicals of ecological importance: (1) the natural chemicals that are involved in regulating and mediating natural inter-species and inter-organismal interactions in the biosphere; (2) man-made chemicals that are involved in chemical pollution of the environment. Publication 25. A first publication to report a unique bioassay of synthetic surfactants using soil algae. Also, this is a first publication to report a juxtaposition of results of the three methods of assessment of toxicity of a chemical: the methods that use (1) plant seedlings; (2) aquatic algae cultures; (3) soil algal cultures.

Publication 1. Innovative conceptualization of ecosystem’s biomachinery (a new scientific term that was proposed by the author; it means ecological mechanisms that include biological communities and biodiversity) which improves water quality. The innovative experimental data analysis, concepts, and generalizations in this article provide the fundamental elements of the new qualitative theory of biocontrol of water quality in a systematized form. The theory covers water selfpurification in freshwater and marine ecosystems. The theory is supported by the results of the author’s experimental studies of the effects exerted by some chemical pollutants including synthetic surfactants, detergents, and other xenobiotics on aquatic organisms. The new fundamental conceptualization provides a basis for remediation of polluted aquatic ecosystems including purification of water bodies and streams, and briefly present the qualitative theory of the self-purification mechanism of aquatic ecosystems, phytoremediation and other types of technologies.

** Publication 2. This paper is the first publication that reported the concentrations of a number of rare earth elements in biodetritus. The rare earth elements are a key component of modern hi-technology products and they are a new component in the modern solid wastes and waste waters. This paper is an innovative and significant contribution to the database for modern environmental monitoring. ** Biodetritus that formed over a 7-month period in microcosms with Viviparus viviparus, Unio pictorum , and Ceratophyllum demersum contained a number of elements. This is the first study to determine concentrations of some elements in biodetritus. Neutron activation analysis showed that the elements concentrations decrease in the following order: Ca > Zn > Ba > Br > Ce > Se > Nd > La > U > Hf > Sb > Th > Sm > S > Cs > Au. The data obtained contribute to understanding of the multifunctional (polyfunctional) role of aquatic organisms in aquatic ecosystems. http://www.scribd.com/doc/104719698

It is the first paper in which it was clearly proved that the synthetic chemical (exemplified by the surfactant sodium dodecylsulfate, SDS), when it pollutes water, produces a dangerous effect on both marine mussels ( Mytilus edulis ) and phytoplankton. SDS decreases water filtration rate by the mussels, and the normal control of abundance of phytoplankton by the marine mussels, the control which is associated with the filtration of water.

What is new, a 2-line summary: this is the first paper to report hazardous effects of a widely-used chemical on diatom algae, important component of phytoplankton. This is a first publication to report a hazardous effect of a synthetic non-ionic surfactant (exemplified by Triton X-100) on diatom algae (exemplified by a marine species, Thalassiosira pseudonana). In the paper, it was shown that this chemical inhibited the reproduction rate and abundance of the cells of this species of marine phytoplankton. Non-ionic surfactants are the key components of many detergents and other chemical mixture products that are being produced in big quantities and used on large scale.

N. Fisher *, M. Maertz-Wente *, and S. A. Ostroumov ** * Marine Science Center, State University of New York, USA ** Biological Faculty, Moscow State University, Vorob’evy Gory, Moscow, 119899 Russia Abstract—The effects of the non-ionogenic surfactant, Triton X-100 (TX), on the growth of cultured centric diatom Thalassiosira pseudonana were studied. In the presence of 0.1 mg/l TX

the cell density in the culture was markedly lower than in the control culture. In the presence of 1 mg/l TX the decrease in cell density exceeded 50%. The decrease in the specific growth rate was about 10% in the presence of 0.1 mg/l TX and about 40% in the presence of 1 mg/l TX (over a period of seven days). The diatom sensitivity to TX was higher than that of some red and green algae and chrysophytes, as well as that of starfish spermatozoa and plant seedlings to TX or similar surfactants. These data reveal some more aspects of the ecological danger of aquatic pollution by non-ionogenic surfactants.

** Publication 19. This is a first publication to report both inhibitory and stimulation effects of a synthetic surfactant on two unique strains of the ocean species of cyanobacteria Synechococcus from the collection of WHOI. These data demonstrated a new hazard of an imbalance of species composition of marine phytoplankton under the effect of pollution by synthetic chemical pollutants. The non-ionogenic synthetic surfactant Triton X-100 acted differently on two strains of cyanobacteria Synechococcus WH 7805 and Synechococcus WH 8103. Thus, 5 mg/liter of the surfactant inhibited the growth of the culture of strain 7805 and favored the growth of the culture of strain 8103. A lower concentration (0.5 mg/liter) stimulated the growth of both strains. The surfactant Triton X-100 produced no effect on the motility of strain 8103 cells.

** Publication 20. What is new, one-line summary: Polymeric chemical inhibited growth rate of plant seedlings. The first publication to report phytotoxicity of a synthetic polymeric surfactant. An innovative bioassay with the higher plant Fagopyrum esculentum (buckwheat) was carried out. A negative reaction of buckwheat (cv. Shatilov-5) seedlings to pollution of the aqueous medium with a polymeric surfactant was discovered. The surfactant studied was a copolymer of hexene and maleic aldehyde (CHMA). It was shown that CHMA content in water with a concentration of the active substance of 0.4-0.9 mg/ml inhibited plant growth. The effect was shown with prolonged incubation of germinating seeds for 43-67 h or more. These data should be taken into account in analysis of the possible ecological consequences of irrigating lands with waste waters and polluted waters. http://www.cababstractsplus.org/abstracts/Abstract.aspx?AcNo=19951908692; Title: REACTION OF FAGOPYRUM ESCULENTUM MOENCH TO POLLUTION OF AQUEOUS MEDIUM WITH POLYMERIC SURFACTANTS.

This is a first publication to report a unique bioassay of synthetic surfactants using soil algae. Also, this is a first publication to report a juxtaposition of results of the three methods of assessment of toxicity of a chemical: the methods that use (1) plant seedlings; (2) aquatic algae cultures; (3) soil algal cultures. Experiments investigating the effects of the cationic surface active compound tetradecyl trimethylammonium bromide (TDTMA) on a number of aquatic and soil algal cultures, and the seedlings of the higher plant Fagopyrum esculentum are described, and the results presented. It is concluded that future studies on the effects of pollutants on algae should involve the use of several test systems (both aquatic and soil algal cultures).

The effects on cyanobacteria Nostoc muscorum Ag, strain 33 isolated from the soil in the Kirov Oblast (Region); and on green algae Bracteacoccus minor (Chodat) Petrova, strain 200 and strain 219 (the strain 219 was isolated from the volcanic ash collected next to Tyatya Volcano, the island of Kunashir) were investigated. Their sensitivity to the surfactant TDTMA was compared with the sensitivity of terrestrial plants. The algal experiments were performed with aquatic and soil cultures. The experiments with terrestrial plants used

the earlier-developed method with the seedlings of Fagopyrum esculentum Moench. The experiments revealed a higher sensitivity of the test with the aquatic algal cultures.

SCOPE: The Russian Academy of Sciences publishes more than 250 journals, first among these being the Herald of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Vestnik Rossiiskoi Akademii Nauk), which provides a road coverage of the cademy’s activities. Founded in 1931, it publishes the major works, speeches, and discussions presented to the Academy by the most eminent Russian and foreign scientists and presents the viewpoints of various disciplines on many important subjects related to the natural, technical, and social sciences It addresses the scientist’s role in society and the role of scientific knowledge in the modern world. Important issues involving our world that affect all major areas of science, education, and our environment are discussed by these top scientists. Space in the journal is regularly devoted to reporting the work of the Presidium of the Academy, results of research groups, awards, prizes, and nominations. For 60 years, the journal appeared only in Russian. Now available in English, this resource is indispensable for university and research departments, libraries, and researchers wanting to keep abreast of news and trends in their fields. Herald of the Russian Academy of Sciences is abstracted and/or indexed in: Academic OneFile, CSA, Chemical Abstract Service (CAS), Current Contents/Physical, Chemical and Earth Sciences, Earthquake Engineering Abstracts, Engineered Materials Abstracts, Gale, Google, Journal Citation Reports/Science Edition, OCLC, ProQuest, SCOPUS, Science Citation Index Expanded, Summon by Serial Solutions. ** Contemporary Problems of Ecology ISSN: 1995-4255 (print version) ISSN: 1995-4263 (electronic version) Read online on SpringerLink Contemporary Problems of Ecology provides an indispensable source of knowledge and guidance to researches in academia and industry. It deserves a place on the library shelves of every academic institute and university with departments of ecology, geography, biology and earth sciences, as well as industrial organizations with environmental protection departments. The journal is a translation of Sibirskiy Ekologicheskiy Zhurnal (Siberian Journal of Ecology), which was launched in 1994. It is a multidisciplinary periodical which publishes original work on the following subjects: theoretical and methodological issues of ecology, regional aspects of ecology, regional environmental disasters, structure and functioning of ecosystems, and anthropogenic transformation of ecosystems. The journal differs from others in that it covers a wide range of ecological problems. All basic aspects of modern ecology, including the most complicated interactions between living organisms and their environment, are presented. It publishes special issues dedicated to the global changes in biological diversity at various levels (populations, species, and ecosystems) and factors affecting them, principles and methods of rational environmental management. The journal is not limited to environmental problems of Siberia and offers materials of general scientific interest. Related subjects » Ecology Abstracted/Indexed in:
