It is not surprizing that the paper was cited by scientists of the countries as diverse as U.S.A., U.K., Italy, Australia, and Kuwait. The paper is an excellent review of the topic. Moreover, it is much more than just a review. The paper is ahead of its time, it provides many new insights into function of aquatic ecosystems. The paper for many years will be very helpful to all who are interested in deeper understanding of issues of aquatic ecology, aquatic environment, water quality, aquatic toxicology, environmental toxicology. It will be of interest to professional scientists, professors, and graduate students. ADDENDUM.

The consumed materials that aren’t assimilated, however, are not lost from the food web to respiration or burial. Instead, they are deposited on surface sediments in the form of feces or pseudofeces (Strayer et al., 1999). Thus, part of what mussels ingest is not of direct use to them but can reenter the ecosystem (Ostroumov, 2005). Both 5 suspension feeders and deposit feeders benefit from this cycling of matter (Howard & Cuffey, 2006). The excretory waste products of mussels, or “biodeposits”, are… KEY WORDS: aquatic, Ecosystem Function, FEATURES, new concepts, paper, review, water, filtering activity, filter-feeders, water quality, suspension feeders, bivalves, mussels, Mytilus, rotifers, ecotoxicology, invertebrates, ecology, biological oceanography, limnology, hydrobiology
