The title of the review:


New toxic effect of surfactant on aquatic plant, pondweed (seconds ago)
by Professor_S.K.
This excellent article is first to report new toxic effects of a synthetic chemical, an
anionic surfactant (sodium dodecyl sulphate) on the common species of Eurasia
pondweed, Potamogeton crispus. This is a valuable contribution to a better
understanding of negative consequences of chemical pollution of freshwater
ecosystems: ponds, lakes and streams. Anionic surfactants are the key components of
many laundry detergents, shampoos, and many other chemical products in everyday
use. Therefore the anionic surfactants are discharged with wastewaters into all types of
aquatic ecosystems.
However, this interesting paper is more than that. There are two aspects in studying
interactions between chemicals and organisms: (1) to find toxic effects concentrations;
(2) by contrast, to find safe concentrations. The second aspect (to find safe
concentrations, and safe loads of the chemicals) is especially important. The
information on the safe concentrations and loads of chemical pollutants is needed to
develop ecological technologies (phytotechnologies) for water treatment.
This brilliant and innovative paper provides this new unique and needed information namely, the new information on both toxic and safe concentrations and loads of the new
chemical pollutant, an anionic surfactant. This valuable article is recommended to all
who are involved in aquatic ecology, aquatic botany, plant science, water quality, water
resources, environmental toxicology, phytoremediation, and modern green technologies
for water treatment.

The title of the review:


Discovery: pollutant (surfactant) inhibits water filtration by daphnia (seconds ago)

by Professor K.
This is a first paper to report the discovery: chemical pollutant (a surfactant) decreases
the water filtration by zooplankton, namely, daphnia. This toxic effect took place at a
relatively low concentration of the chemical (a surfactant, sodium dodecyl sulphate, or
SDS). This discovery is in agreement with the previous publications and discoveries of
Dr. Sergei Ostroumov (Moscow State University). His previous research demonstrated
that the same chemical pollutant decreased (inhibited) water filtration by some other
water invertebrate animals, namely, bivalve mollusks. The new discovery is important.
The new fact demonstrated a new hazard from the chemical pollutants even at their low
concentrations.
The new fact confirmed the conclusions of the previous publications of Dr. S.
Ostroumov. The new data added additional evidence on serious environmental hazards
from synthetic surfactants. These chemicals pollute water ecosystems.

Conclusion: This paper presented important new facts. These facts are really relevant.
The publication is of outstanding interest to many scientists who study ecology,
environmental pollution, environmental toxicology, aquatic ecotoxicology. I recommend
this excellent article.

Review of the paper:
The role of biodetritus in accumulation of elements in aquatic ecosystems
(Co-authors of the paper under review: S A Ostroumov; G M Kolesov)
Article

The title of the review:

First paper: gold, uranium, other chemical elements in biodetritus

(seconds ago)

by Professor_K.

This is the first paper to report concentrations of gold, uranium, other valuable
chemical elements in biodetritus (i.e., biological detritus) in sediments in aquatic
system. The author, a Fulbright Award winner, conducted innovative and unique
experiments. For a number of months, he has created a biological detritus in an
experimental water ecosystem.
This detritus was generated by both plant and animal aquatic organisms in this water
ecosystem. After several months, he collected the detritus and measured the
concentrations of a number of chemical elements including gold, uranium and some
others (some interesting rare earth elements among them).
As a result, he obtained absolutely new and unique data on the biogeochemical role of
biological detritus in aquatic ecosystems.
The chemical elements that were found and measured in the biological detritus were:
Ca, Zn, Ba, Br, Ce, Se, Nd, La, U, Hf, Sb, Th, Sm, S, Cs, Au.
This article is absolutely innovative. I recommend it for reading and citation. It will be
very useful to all who study chemical ecology, aquatic ecology, biogeochemistry,
sediments in water systems.

The title of the review:


New ideas on nature conservation. ( the authors of the book under review: A.Yablokov,
S.Ostroumov) (seconds ago)

by Professor_K.
Excellent book. New useful system of facts, ideas on nature conservation. The full and
more correct reference is:
Yablokov A.V., Ostroumov S.A. Levels of Living Nature Conservation. 1985. Nauka
Press. Moscow. 176 p. DOI: 10.13140/2.1.1679.9366.
The book presented a fresh, unique and innovative approach to analysis of issues of
nature conservation. The authors invented a new productive conceptualization of the
new science of conservation biology. They proposed and used a very efficient
approach. This approach is based on the concept of levels of organization of living
systems. As a result, the authors, prominent biologists, transformed a huge mass of
facts on anthropogenic effects on nature (man-made impact on living organisms, the
biota, the biosphere) into a well-organized system of scientifically treated data.
The book presented also a unique system of axioms of nature conservation.
The book was translated into some other languages.
The citation of this book is excellent.
This unique, innovative book was ahead of its time, it will be useful to many who are
involved and interested in nature conservation and environmental protection. It is really
very useful and recommended to scientists, professors and students.
