segments of Pinios River which lack the retention capacity of the BOD and nutrient
input, the difference of the estimated input and output pollution loads was
compared at upstream and downstream clustered areas of a total of 73 segments.
Catchment areas ranged from 1 to 11,300 km2. Emissions were always higher than
the actual transport, therefore retention was assumed to take place. Specific runoff,
percentage of the surface water area and the calculated input of pollution loads
(BOD, P, N) varied between the different Pinios River basin catchment areas. The
transport to the emission load ratio was different between large and small
catchments. The rate of retention among consecutive segments revealed that four
lowland segments lacked in their relative retention capacity.

ABSTRACT : Amphibian declines likely result in measurable changes in aquatic and
riparian ecosystems. Here, we concentrate on potential consequences of the loss of
larval anurans for aquatic ecosystems. In rural savanna regions of West Africa,
freshwater ecosystems are essential water resources for humans and cattle.
Altering these ecosystems therefore may have important economic and health
consequences. Prospective impacts on water chemistry, algae and aquatic
invertebrate taxa are highlighted. [© 2009 Deutsche Gesellschaft für Herpetologie

Ecology,2008, v. 358 (1), pp. 78-85 . []; ABSTRACT: Mussels,
such as Mytilus edulis, are common keystone species on open coasts and in
estuaries and are frequently used in environmental monitoring programmes.
Mussels experience a wide range of environmental conditions at these locations,
including rapid changes in salinity and physical disturbance (both natural and from
aquaculture practices). This paper addressed the hypothesis that reduced salinity
will lower mussel blood immune function and influence mussel blood metabolic
responses, and that this will in turn increase the susceptibility of mussels to other
stresses such as physical disturbance. To test these hypotheses, experiments were
conducted in controlled laboratory tank conditions and mussel blood was analysed
using a combination of metabolic fingerprinting with FT-IR and immunological assay
techniques. Reducing seawater salinity to half that of normal caused a significant
reduction in several measures of immune function, including the concentration of
haemocytes, percentage of eosinophilic haemocytes and phagocytosis. Mechanical
shaking of mussels for 10 min caused a reduction in the level of respiratory burst
activity. However, there was no evidence of additive or interactive effects of
lowered salinity with shaking on the immune response. Analysis of mussel blood
metabolic fingerprints revealed differences in response to half salinity (vs. full
salinity) but there were no detectable effects of shaking. Increasing frequency and
magnitude of flood events at coastal sites due to climate change could lead to
longer, and more frequent, periods of reduced salinity. The potential impact on the
immune function of this keystone species within or near estuaries could have knock-
on effects on the wider ecosystem including altered nutrient cycling, changes in
biodiversity and aquaculture production..

Identification of the self-purification stretches of the Pinios River, Central Greece . -
Mediterranean Marine Science, 2007, Volume 8/2, p.19-32.

ABSTRACT: The Pinios River basin in Thessaly, Greece, is intensively farmed and
heavily polluted with poorly treated domestic and industrial waste. The river was
divided into 35 homogenous stretches. We investigated the self-purification
capacity along the different stretches of the Pinios based on the responses of the
benthic macroinvertebrate community to municipal, industrial and agricultural
pollution in the basin. Water quality was assessed by the performance of six
diversity and biotic indices and scores for assessing water quality. Self-purification
found by the downstream amelioration of water quality was evident at five
stretches. These stretches should be safeguarded and priority should be given to
restoration projects along the most water-quality-degraded stretches that lack the
capacity for self-purification.

ABSTRACT: A back-propagation algorithm neural network (BPNN) was developed to
synchronously simulate concentrations of total nitrogen (TN), total phosphorus (TP)
and dissolved oxygen (DO) in response to agricultural non-point source pollution
(AGNPS) for any month and location in the Changle River, southeast China. Monthly
river flow, water temperature, flow travel time, rainfall and upstream TN, TP and DO
concentrations were selected as initial inputs of the BPNN through coupling
correlation analysis and quadratic polynomial stepwise regression analysis for the
outputs, i.e. downstream TN, TP and DO concentrations. The input variables and
number of hidden nodes of the BPNN were then optimized using a combination of
growing and pruning methods. The final structure of the BPNN was determined from
simulated data based on experimental data for both the training and validation
phases. The predicted values obtained using a BPNN consisting of the seven initial
input variables (described above), one hidden layer with four nodes and three
output variables matched well with observed values. The model indicated that
decreasing upstream input concentrations during the dry season and control of NPS
along the reach during average and flood seasons may be an effective way to
improve Changle River water quality. If the necessary water quality and hydrology
data are available, the methodology developed here can easily be applied to other
case studies. The BPNN model is an easy-to-use modelling tool for managers to
obtain rapid preliminary identification of spatiotemporal water quality variations in
response to natural and artificial modifications of an agricultural drainage river.

Climate change, agriculture and wetlands in Eastern Europe: vulnerability,
adaptation and policy // Climatic Change 36: 107–121, 1997. ABSTRACT. Naturally-
occurring wetlands perform such functions as flood control, pollution filtration,
nutrient recycling, sediment accretion, groundwater recharge and water supply,
erosion control, and plant and wildlife preservation. A large concentration of
wetlands is located in Eastern Europe. A significant amount of Eastern European
wetlands has been converted to agricultural use in the past, and remaining
wetlands are subject to agricultural drainage. Drained wetlands are used as prime
agriculture lands for a variety of food crops. Other agricultural uses of wetlands
range from growing Phragmites australis (common reed) for thatch and livestock
feed, to collecting peat for heating and cooking fuel. Altered hydrologic regimes due
to global climate change could further exacerbate encroachment of agricultural
land use into wetlands.

“BIO”, Koryazhma, Arkhangel’sk oblast, 165650, Russia] ABSTRACT. The
accumulation and variability of ecdysteroids, which are analogs of the insect
molting hormones, were studied during ontogeny of agricultural populations of
Rhaponticum carthamoides (Leuzea carthamoides DC.) and Serratula coronata with
relation to the plant age and cultivation conditions. The physiological role of
ecdysteroids in the ecological interactions with pests was evaluated. It was found
that the enhancement of herbivore activity coincided with biochemical changes in
the composition of ecdysteroids having different physiological activities and was
accompanied by damage to reproductive organs. During ontogenetic (age-related)
changes and seasonal development in the vegetation season, the content of the
physiologically active ecdysteroid 20-hydroxyecdysone decreased and relatively
moderately active inokosterone and weakly active ecdysone were accumulated in
reproductive shoots. Accumulation of the weakly active ecdysone in phytomass is
affected by environmental conditions and anthropogenic factors of cultivation. The
factors contributing to the damage potential are environmental microclimate, relief
features of population locations, and agrotechnical measures (frequency of
phytomass removal, excessive moisture content in the rooting layer). KEY WORDS:
