Using the method of inversion voltamperometry, the concentrations of the heavy metals

Cu, Zn, Cd, Pb were measured in the water of the experimental microcosms. Aquatic macrophytes Ceratophyllum demersum were incubated in the microcosms. The measured concentrations of all four heavy metals decreased in the microcosms with the macrophytes much faster than in the control microcosms without any aquatic plants. The new results complemented the authors previous data on the phytoremediation potential of aquatic plants (see: Bulletin of Moscow University [ = Vestnik Moskovskogo Universiteta]. Series 16.

Addition of sodium dodecylsulphate (SDS) to water rapidly changed the surface tension of water in the microcosm. The measurements demonstrated that the surface tension of water in the microcosm with the macrophyte OST1 restored to the level which was close to that of pure water within less than three days. As soon as after 46-h incubation of the system containing the plant phytomass, the surface tension increased significantly and reached that of distilled water. In the variants with water without any plant phytomass, the restoration of the normal surface tension took much longer (about 17 days). The results demonstrated an accelerated restoration of the normal surface tension which was typical of pure water in those systems that contained SDS in the presence of the phytomass of the macrophyte OST1. This is consistent with the assumption that the macrophyte accelerates the disappearance of the surfactant from water.

These trends in research include studies of the role of chemical substances in interorganismal interactions, in communication and regulation of supraorganismal systems. Another part of biochemical ecology concerns studies of the destiny and transformation of external chemical substances when they interact with the organisms. Both natural and manmade compounds are interesting for biochemical ecology. The basic concepts of biochemical ecology include ecological chemomediators and ecological chemoregulators that have already been included in the body of modern conceptions and are used in modern ecological literature. Application of biochemical ecology to aquatic ecosystems creates the basis for development of biochemical hydrobiology.

The paper formulates some basics of the modern ecological theory of the polyfunctional role of biota in the molecular-ecological mechanism of water decontamination, water quality formation and improvement, in the purification potential of aquatic ecosystems.

Ostroumov S.A. Some aspects of water filtering activity of filter-feeders // Hydrobiologia 2005. Vol. 542, No. 1. P. 275 – 286 (in Eng.). On the basis of the previous publications, our new data and the existing scientific literature, the author 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 (water quality maintenance and improving), (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 (synthetic surfactant tetradecyltrymethylammonium bromide, heavy metals and some others).

On the Multifunctional Role of the Biota in the Self-Purification of Aquatic Ecosystems // Russian Journal of Ecology, Vol. 36, No. 6, 2005, p. 414–420. [The 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 have been used. These results indicate that the water selfpurification mechanism is vulnerable to the impact of some pollutants and, in particular, surfactants. Conclusions drawn on the basis of the theory have practical significance for biodiversity conservation, for the sustainable use of the biological resources of aquatic ecosystems, for water quality maintenance and improving.

Aquatic ecosystem as a bioreactor: water purification and some other functions. - Rivista di Biologia / Biology Forum, 2004, vol. 97, p. 39-50. 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, water quality improvement. 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.

[The currently accepted system of criteria for evaluating environmental and ecological hazards of man-made chemicals (pollutants) is vulnerable to criticism. In this paper, a new concept of the system of approaches towards criteria for evaluating the ecological hazard from man-made impact is proposed. It is suggested to assess the man-made impacts (including effects of pollutants and xenobiotics) on the biota according to the following four levels of disturbance in biological and ecological systems: (1) the level of individual responses; (2) the level of aggregated responses of groups of organisms; (3) the level of stability and integrity of the ecosystem; (4) the level of contributions of the ecosystem to biospheric processes.

Polyfunctional role of biodiversity in processes leading to water purification: current conceptualizations and concluding remarks. — Hydrobiologia. 2002. V. 469 (1-3): 203-204. [Selected elements of a new vision of the role of biodiversity in water purification and maintaining the natural purification potential of ecosystems, elements of the theory of water self-purification. 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 (including filterfeeders and other organisms) in ecosystems, and water quality maintenance and improving. 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)].
