year research done by the author and over 90 author's research publications in many Russian and
international editions as well as hundreds of publications of other scientists. The book contains new
detailed information on the results of the author’s studies of the biological effects of synthetic surfactants
and detergents on autotrophic and heterotrophic, prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms. The chemicals
included anionic, non-ionic and cationic surfactants, as well as several types of detergents. The freshwater
and marine organisms studied included bacteria and cyanobacteria, algae, flagellates, seedlings of higher
plants, and invertebrates (mollusks, annelids). The results are discussed and analyzed in connection with
new priorities in assessing the ecological hazards of chemical pollution and xenobiotics on the biosphere
and hydrosphere, studying water purification in aquatic ecosystems, and setting new priorities in the area
of environmental protection. The book is of interest to scientists who conduct research in relevant areas of
ecology, limnology, oceanography, hydrobiology, environmental sciences, water sciences, geosciences,
the science of the biosphere and global change, ecotoxicology, as well as to university professors,
graduate students and educators. The book is also of interest to those who are involved in environmental
management and assessment, environmental law and regulation. The book is also of interest to companies
that make dispersants to clean oil spills, shampoos, laundry detergents, detergents for cars, and other
detergents. Opinion of Dr. Steven C. McCutcheon about the book, from his Preface: "I am pleased to
have this opportunity to comment on the scientific leadership of Sergei A. Ostroumov. The book is highly
recommended to those who are involved in studying ecology and solving environmental problems". -

[=Проблемы экологии и гидробиологии / ред. И.К. Тодераш, С.А. Остроумов, Е.И.
Зубкова. Москва, МАКС пресс. 2008. - 80 с.] The collective monograph contains publications
of the international team of authors on issues of ecology, biogeochemistry, water quality, and
environmental monitoring. The main part of the book is formed by the innovative materials on the
role of aquatic organisms in water self-purification and biogenic migration of elements. The role of
aquatic mollusks in the biogenic migration of metals is given special attention. The organisms that
were studied included several species of organisms inhabiting freshwater and marine
environments. Among those species were mollusks Unio pictorum, zebra mussel Dreissena
polymorpha, marine mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis and some other organisms. One of the
papers contributes to developing new ecological technologies to treat polluted waters using aquatic
vegetation (macrophytes, plants), for instance, elodea Elodea canadensis, Potamogeton crispus
and other species. The collective monograph was initiated and organized by Dr. S.A. Ostroumov as
a step toward contributing to the scientific basis of environmental safety and sustainability. The
book was published under the aegis of Moscow State University and the Moscow Society of
Researchers of Nature (MOIP), the oldest public society in Russia. [D:\Мои публикации\2008

Review: Ermakov V.V. (Prof., Head of Lab. of Biogeochem., Russ. Acad. Sci.) About the book
S.A. Ostroumov «Aquatic organisms in self-purification of water and the biogenic migration of
elements» // Water: Chemistry and Ecology. 2009. № 8. p.25-29. Bibliogr. 26 refs. A new theory
for the biomechanisms for water self-purification is presented in the S.A.Ostroumov’s book
‘Aquatic Organisms in Water Self-Purification and Biogenic Migration of Elements’ (2008, 200
p.). Hydrobionts (aquatic organisms) are actively involved in various processes leading to water
purification. Almost all main groups of organisms are involved, which is discussed and analyzed in
the paper. In the theory, the results of the author's experiments on the effects of various pollutants
on aquatic organisms were used. The theory is an innovative basis for new ecological technologies
to clean water and to upgrade its quality by using aquatic organisms.

The brochure is a material for the lecture. The author was invited to lecture at the All-Russia
Conference with the elements of a scientific school "Ecotoxicology-2009". Conference is
organized by the Scientific-Educational Center "Ecobiotechnology" of Tula State University at the
Institute of Biochemistry and Physiology of Microorganisms, RAN, 26 - 30 October 2009,
Pushchino. The aim of this work - to summarize and systematize the publications of the author
which are related to the topic of the lecture. It contains the results of the author's works in the
period 1985-2009. The results and bibliography are summarized in the tables: 1. Accumulation of
elements in organisms and their role in biogeochemical fluxes of elements; 2. Effects of
xenobiotics and pollutants on higher plants; 3. The impact of chemicals on algae; 4. The impact of
xenobiotics on molluscs and some plankton organisms which are filter feeders; 5.Investigations of
the role of aquatic plants in relation to phytotechnologies and phytoremediation; 6. Conceptual
developments of fundamentals of general ecology and the state of the biosphere. Among the new
fundamental concepts introduced by the author: the biosphere as an ecological-biochemical
continuum (p.43), theory of apparatus of the biosphere (p.43-44).
