We examined the accumulation of bacteria in the Demospongiae (Hymeniacidon perlevis). Analyses were performed on homogenates from unstarved and starved sponges in seawater from their sampling site (the Ionian Sea). Culturable heterotrophic bacteria (22°C), total culturable bacteria (37°C) and vibrios densities were measured on marine agar 2216, plate count agar and TCBS agar, respectively. Total and fecal coliforms, as well as fecal streptococci, were determined by the most probable number method (MPN). H. perlevis was able to accumulate all of the six microbiological groups. Bacterial groups differed in their resistance to digestion by H. perlevis. Our data suggest that H. perlevis may accumulate, remediate and metabolize bacteria and that they may be employed as a useful bioindicator and bioremediator. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.

During the last fifteen years, the lake has shown significant signs of degradation, such as disturbance of its aquifer bed, algal blooms, fish mass mortalities, and the transformation of its trophic status from an oligotrophic to a meso-trophic and, even, an eutrophic one. Such a transformation has an additional impact on terrestrial, avian and aquatic fauna, with alteration in species' composition, and a considerable decline in local fisheries and tourism. This study focused on investigating the role that gully Pentavrisos has on the physicochemical water quality status of Lake Vegoritis. Most parameters inside the lake (nitrates 0.55-1.95 mg.l-1, nitrites 0.008-0.031 mg.l-1, ammonia 0.011-0.158 mg.l-1) indicate the existence of a natural purification process occurring between the sites of gully Pentavrisos, receiving the treated/untreated effluents, and the final recipient of those effluents, Lake Vegoritis. Suggested mitigation measures for the restoration of the lake and the management of the respective aquifer bed, mainly consist of rationalization of water consumption for irrigation purposes, recycling of industrial effluent water, establishment of depuration plants for the biological treatment of industrial and urban waste, appropriate planning and demarcation of land-use in the littoral areas of the lake, and qualitative upgrade of Pentavrisos gully. © by PSP Volume 14 - No 12a. 2005.

View references (47) Abstract Benthic and hyporheic (i.e. the water-saturated interstitial zone beneath river bed-sediments) processes together modify particulate and dissolved nutrient fluxes in streams, but the relative importance of these processes remains unstudied in large rivers. Changes in material and nutrient fluxes (total suspended matter, biodegradable and refractory dissolved organic carbon, and nitrate) were monitored along a reach with a regulated discharge (a by-passed section downstream of a dam). Mass balance diagrams highlight a contrasting functioning between upstream and downstream parts of this sector of the Rhône River (Pierre-Bénite sector, France). At the upstream location close to the water input, characterized by partially clogged sediments and large lentic zones, decrease in total suspended matter (TSM) and biodegradable dissolved organic carbon (BDOC) fluxes resulted from high rates of benthic processes (i.e. sedimentation, respiration and mineralisation). At the downstream location, characterized by strong vertical water exchanges in a large riffle, nutrient changes resulted from the combination of processes that took place at the surface of the stream bed and during water percolation through riffle sediments. Physical benthic processes (scouring of periphyton, erosion and resuspension of sediment due to higher surface velocity) lead to an increase of TSM and DOC fluxes. Within the riffle, decomposition and mineralisation of organic matter in the first meter of the infiltration zone, and physical entrapment of RDOC, make the riffle as a sink for DOC and a source of nitrate. The significant contribution of the riffle to the self-purification capacities of this large river reach shows the relevance of including interstitial compartment in self-purification studies.
