Abstract. The author formulated a new fundamental concept of aquatic ecosystem as a bioreactor that carries
out the function of water purification in natural water bodies and streams. According to his new concept, 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.
New experimental data on xenobiotics-induced inhibition of the functioning of the molluscs Unio tumidus, U.
pictorum, M. galloprovincialis and Limnaea stagnalis emphasize the potential ecological hazard from
sublethal concentrations of pollutants (including those exemplified by synthetic surfactants and detergents).

1. INTRODUCTION
Priorities of ecological research include the further studies of ecosystem functioning (Ostroumov et
al., [2003]) that include functioning towards water purification (the self-purification of water) in natural water
bodies and streams.
The self-purification of water in natural ecosystems is a complex group of processes which includes
physical, chemical, and biological components (Sushchenya, [1975]; Alimov [ 1981], [2000]; Skurlatov,
[1988]; Uhlmann, [1988]; Izrael, and Tsyban, [1989]; Ostroumov [1998], [2001], [2002b]; Wetzel [2001]).
Although biological aspects of water self-purification are generally attributed to heterotrophic
microorganisms, the other groups of organisms are also known to play a significant role in this process
(Sushchenya, [1975]; Konstantinov [1979], Alimov [ 1981], [2000], Wallace, and Starkweather, [1985];
Vymazal, [1988]; Walz, [1995]; Monakov[1998]; Wetzel [2001]; also, Vinberg, [1973]; Bul'on, Nikulina,
[1976]; Ivanova,[1976]; Khlebovich, [1976]; - cit. in Ostroumov, [2001]).
The goal of this work was to analyze some data from the literature and our own experimental data on
water self-purification under natural conditions and to formulate a fundamental concept of the aquatic
ecosystem as an analog of a bioreactor (in a broad sense) that contributes to water self-purification mediated
by main groups of aquatic organisms.
This paper is based on some previous publications of the author (Ostroumov [2000c], [2001],
[2002a]).

2. METHODS

The rate of water purification by macrozoobenthic filter feeders was measured experimentally as
described earlier (Ostroumov [2001]). After the water sample had been kept with filter feeders for a certain
time, the water filtration efficiency was monitored by the measuring the optical density of the suspension of
unfiltered single - cell organisms that remained in the water column. The control samples of water were
subjected to the same procedure of filtration, but without the contaminant (chemical) tested. Some other
methods of the studies of the effects of contaminants on aquatic organisms are described in (Waterbury &
Ostroumov [1994] , Ostroumov et al. [1997]).

3. ROLE OF THE MAIN GROUPS OF ORGANISMS IN THE BIOLOGICAL PROCESSES OF
WATER PURIFICATION

Self-purification of water includes the following biological processes: (1) biodegradation of
contaminants; (2) accumulation and sequestration of toxicants in aquatic organisms and the resultant removal
of the toxicants from the water column (e.g. Vymazal, [1988]); (3) generation and emission of oxygen
required for oxidative degradation of contaminants; (4) uptake of biogenic substances (including N and P)
and organic substances from the aquatic environment; (5) production of exometabolites; (6) water filtration
(Sushchenya, [1975]; Alimov [1981]; Wallace, and Starkweather, [1985]; Monakov [1998]); and (7)
formation of pellet and detritus particles (e.g., Wotton et al. [1998]); and their sedimentation to the bottom
(for review, see e.g., Konstantinov,[ 1979]; Ostroumov [1986], [1998], [2001], [2002b]; Skurlatov, [ 1988]).
This list is far from complete, and some other biological phenomena simultaneously contribute to several
processes listed above. Analysis of the relative contributions of individual groups of aquatic organisms to
water self-purification as an integral function of an ecosystem (Table 1) shows that the main groups of
organisms simultaneously contribute to several processes of the system of water self-purification. None of the
main groups of aquatic organisms can be regarded as being insignificant in terms of water purification. The
role of each group of aquatic organisms in these processes can be summarized as an integral ecological rating,
which is calculated as the sum of the number of pluses in the corresponding row of Table 1. It is seen from
Table 1 that this rating is sufficiently high in all groups of organisms.
Thus, the whole range of biological diversity of aquatic organisms is an important factor in water
self-purification (Sushchenya, [1975]; Alimov [1981, 2000], Wallace, and Starkweather, [1985]; Wotton et
al. [1998]; Ostroumov [2001], Wetzel [2001]). The biota representatives of the water column, the entire
ecosystem volume, the boundary regions of the ecosystem, and zones of contact between the ecosystem and
its environment are involved in water purification. Activities of unicellular organisms (including those freely
suspended in water, immobilized, and attached to various particles, surfaces, and substrates) (e.g., Inkina,
[1988]) as well as of other aquatic organisms (e.g., Ostroumov [2001], Wetzel [2001]) suggest that an
aquatic ecosystem may be regarded as a bioreactor (in a metaphorically broad sense; i.e., including
biological, physical, and chemical aspects). However, unlike industrial bioreactors, such a broad-sense
bioreactor has the following important features.

4. AQUATIC ECOSYSTEM AS A BIOREACTOR WITH SOME FEATURES

The first feature is a fundamental difference in the bioreactor size. The volume of technological
bioreactors does not exceed a few hundred cubic meters, whereas the volume of natural ecosystems is
significantly larger. For example, the volumes of lake and estuary ecosystems reach thousands of cubic
kilometers: Lake Baikal, 22995 km 3 ; Lake Superior, 12221 km 3 ; Lake Michigan, 4871 km 3 ; Lake
Issyk-Kul, 1730 km 3 ; Lake Ladoga, 908 km 3 ; Lake Onega, 280 km 3 ; Lake Balkhash, 112 km 3 ;
and Lake Sevan, 38 km 3 ; (1 km 3 = 10 9 m 3 ). This increases the biospheric role of ecological,
biochemical, and biofiltration processes in these systems. Therefore, the physical size and volume of the
system within which water self-purification take place should be taken into consideration. Thus, natural
ecosystems can be regarded as large-size (large-scale) analogues of bioreactors.
The second feature is the differences (in terms of size and diversity) between the gene-pool of
organisms inhabiting natural ecosystems and the genetic pool of organizms grown in technological
bioreactors. This difference leads to a significantly larger diversity of functional activities of organisms in
natural ecosystems. Technological bioreactors are usually inoculated with monocultures or, less frequently,
mixed cultures with a small number of constituting species. In contrast to technological bioreactors, the
biological diversity of natural ecosystems is substantially broader. According to some incomplete estimates,
the number of species in natural ecosystems is as many as several hundred to several thousand (e.g.,
Konstantinov, [1979]). These estimates were obtained without regard to the number of strains of individual
microbial species. If the prokaryote strains are taken into account, the quantitative estimates of the biological
diversity of taxa in natural ecosystems may increase by several orders of magnitude.
Third, an aquatic ecosystem is characterized by a higher degree of autonomy (including energy
autonomy) than technological bioreactors. This autonomy is based on the presence of autotrophic organisms.
Thus we suggest that natural ecosystems should be regarded as multispecies and diversified (i.e., based on the
diversity of organisms and their functions) analogs of bioreactors, implementing a broad spectrum of catalytic
functions (including transformation and degradation of contaminants).

5. MAN-MADE EFFECTS AND THE EFFECTS OF SOME XENOBIOTICS

Anthropogenic sublethal effects (including the inhibition of physiological activities) and behavioral
changes in virtually any group or taxon of aquatic organisms may decrease the bioreactor efficiency. Some
sublethal effects should be regarded as a potential hazard to the purification function (Ostroumov [1998],
[2000a ], [2000b], [2002a]; Ostroumov et al. [1997], [1999 ] ). Because the main groups of macroorganisms
and microorganisms play a substantial role in self-purification of ecosystems, it is very important to compare
the sensitivities of the organisms to various contaminants. In some cases, macroorganisms are at least as
sensitive (or even more sensitive) to contaminants as microorganisms (Table 2).
According to the presently adopted regulation of ecological monitoring and bioassaying, the ability of
chemical compounds to damage the self-purification potential of ecosystems is being tested using
heterotrophic bacteria alone. However, it follows from Table 2 that this approach may result in an
underestimation of the effects of contaminants on more sensitive biological components of self-purified
ecosystems (e.g., some macroorganisms).
We obtained new data on the ability of xenobiotics to inhibit water filtration by marine and
freshwater organisms and on the hygienic function of pulmonary mollusks associated with elimination of
organic matter (the removal of phytomass) from the water column in aquatic ecosystems (Table 3).
Some sublethal concentrations of contaminants may inhibit vital activities of other organisms
involved in the functioning of the ecosystem as an analog of a bioreactor (e.g., Ostroumov [2001], [2002a],
Ostroumov et al. [1999]).

6. AQUATIC ECOSYSTEMS AS PART OF THE APPARATUS OF THE BIOSPHERE

V.I. Vernadsky considered the biota as the apparatus of the biosphere (Vernadsky, [2001]). To
continue and develop his thought, we could consider aquatic ecosystems and aquatic biota as a key part of
that apparatus. In that capacity, aquatic ecosystem carries a number of functions, not only the one function
discussed above (water purification). Among those biospherically important functions are the following: (1)
production of organic matter; (2) removing the excess organic matter; ( 3 ) mediating, catalyzing, and
regulating biogeochemical flows and cycles; ( 4) harboring biodiversity and by doing so harboring the
genetic pool of biodiversity; (5) providing links among various parts of the biosphere; ( 6) contributing to
stability of the biosphere.

7. CONCLUSIONS
The fundamental concept put forward in this work emphasizes that both the biological diversity of
aquatic organisms and their normal level of physiological activities are required to provide the effective
functioning of an ecosystem as an analog of a bioreactor. That bioreactor carries a number of biospherically
important functions and processes (we call them 'microbiospheric processes') including those of water
purification (environmental remediation, ecological repair). This may lead to a deeper insight into the
mechanisms of aquatic ecosystems and to better understanding of hazards of the anthropogenic impact on the
biosphere (Yablokov, Ostroumov [1983], [1985], [1991]; Ostroumov [1986]; [Wetzel, 2001]).

systematized form, the basic elements of the qualitative theory of biotic control of water quality and
water self-purification in freshwater and marine ecosystems. The theory contributes to a better
understanding of the issues of stability and regulation in the biosphere. The theory is supported by the
results of the author’s experimental studies of the effects exerted by surfactants, detergents and other
pollutants on aquatic organisms.http://sites.google.com/site/9enecologica16p25theory/

------------Abstract. The author gave innovative analysis of the vital role of filter-feeders in functioning and
maintenance of stability of aquatic ecosystems (both freshwater and marine ones). The paper includes the
following tables. Table 1. Examples of the impact of filter-feeders on the water column: clearance time. Table
2. Examples of diversity of taxons of benthic organisms involved in removing seston from water, and
filtration rates. Table 3. Effect of the increase in concentration of algae on the filtration rate and the amount
consumed by rotifers Brachionus calyciflorus. Table 4. The ratio F:P in some groups of organisms (examples
of "ecological taxation"). Table 5. The ratio F: (P+R) in some filter feeders. Table 6. Results of the ecological
tax: biosediment formation in 6 ecosystems. Table 7. Contribution of various aquatic organisms to oxidation
of organic matter in the ecosystem of the Sea of Okhotsk. Table 8. Some chemicals that inhibit the filtering
activity of the filter-feeders (new data of the author). Table 9. Some features of water-filtering biomachinery:
6 fundamental principles. Table 10. The level-block approach to the analysis of ecological hazards of
anthropogenic effects on the biota (the new conceptualization proposed by the author). 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, (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). The inhibition of the filtration activity of filter-feeders may lead to the
situation previously described as that of an ecological … of the second type.

2002 (March). Vol. 383 (1-6): 127-130. Bibliogr.15. ISSN 0012-4966. Discovery of a new type of negative
impact of pollutants on the biosphere, as a result of inhibition of water filtration by filter-feeders / suspension
feeders. The water filtration and associated removal of suspended matter from water is part of migration of
matter. As V.I. Vernadsky stressed, organisms are mediators of “biogenic migration of atoms in the
biosphere”. This migration is partly implemented in the framework of pelagial–benthal coupling via the
activity of filter-feeders, which remove the organic suspended matter from water and excrete pellets. The
tables contains the following data: the average percentage of assimilated (16-90%) and non-assimilated (10-
84%) food matter for 15 large taxa of invertebrates (Table 1); potassium bichromate inhibited water filtration
by mussels Mytilus galloprovincialis (Table 2); surfactants, detergents, pesticides inhibited filtration by filter-
feeders, marine and freshwater bivalves and rotifers (Table 3). A prediction was made: "Further research and
experimental studies are expected to provide new evidence that sublethal concentrations of chemical
pollutants induce a significant decrease in the filtration capacity of freshwater and marine filter feeders"
(p.129). "The uncoupling process considered above is an anthropogenic violation of two basic laws
(empirical rules or biogeochemical principles) of the biosphere functioning: (1) biogenic migration of atoms
of chemical elements in the biosphere always tends toward its maximum expression; (2) on the geological
time scale, the evolution of species gives rise to the forms of life that are stable in the biosphere, and is so
directed that the biogenic migration of atoms in the biosphere increases" (p.129).];

Springer, orderdept@springer-sbm.com. As a result of the author’s studies of filter-feeders (DAN, 1998, Vol.
362, P. 574-576; DAN, 2001, Vol. 378, P. 283-285), it is clear that the filtering activity of populations of
filter-feeders in natural habitats might be significantly reduced if the concentrations of some pollutants reach
certain levels. The role of filter-feeders as factors of water purification in ecosystems is so important that
their inhibition is a danger for the entire ecosystem. The author emphasizes that not only the biodiversity of
filter-feeders but also their level of functional (filtration) activity is to be protected. In order to do so, the
author suggested establishing a new type of protected areas whose main purpose is to protect functionally
active populations of filter-feeders, including bivalves and other organisms. Those protected areas could be
named hydrobiological (some variants: biofiltering, or malacological) reserves (some variants: refuges,
sanctuaries, etc.). The author formulated 5 principles of nature conservation requirements in malacological
and hydrobiological reserves (Tabl. 3). Among them is principle 2, "conservation of filtration activity of
organisms and populations". The paper contains data on how 5 detergents (1-50 mg/L) inhibited the filtration
activity of Unio tumidus, Mytilus galloprovincialis, Crassostrea gigas (Tabl. 2); on effects on the efficiency
of elimination (EEE) of suspended matter from water were measured (Tabl. 2); on the number of days (0.3 –
10) needed to filter the volume of aquatic (freshwater and marine) ecosystem by the local bivalves (a review
of data from literature) (Tabl. 1). "I suggest that the existing system of protected terrestrial and water areas
should be supplemented with special sites intended to conserve populations of filter-feeders. In addition to
biodiversity conservation, these populations should be conserved because they fulfill a very important
biogeocenotic function of water filtration and purification" (p.149). "The system of five principles…is
proposed to provide an ecological basis of the environment conservation conditions at these sites
(malacological and hydrobiological reserves)" (p.149).]. DOI 10.1023/A:1015398125876;

approach to analyze the key ecological issue, the interactions between organisms in ecosystems. The new
methodology proposed is inhibitory analysis. The author applied this approach to analyze trophic chains: the
top–down control of plankton by benthic filter-feeders. This control, as the author’s experiments have shown,
might be removed by chemical inhibitors (the latter may enter the ecosystem as pollutants). As an example,
the author gives the results of his experiments on how surfactants [tetradecyltrimethylammonium bromide
(TDTMA)] and synthetic detergents inhibited the control of plankton (Monochrystis lutheri) by mussels
Mytilus galloprovincialis. The method was successfully applied to innovatively analyze the factors that are
among reasons of eutrophication. Among new facts: the cationic surfactant TDTMA 1 mg/L inhibited the
filtration rate of juveniles of marine bivalves Mytilus galloprovincialis, and the removal of cells of the algae
Monochrysis lutheri from water (50 min, 26˚C)]. DOI 10.1023/A:1019218026198;

July 31, 2009; ABSTRACT: Study of biogenic migration of the chemical elements is an important line of the
biosphere research [1–8]. Biogenic migration of the elements in aquatic ecosystems, both freshwater and
saltwater ones, is important for water self purification and water quality formation [9–11]. Data on element
accumulation and binding by aquatic organisms, including macrophytes, are necessary for analyzing the
organisms’ important role in biogenic migration of the elements in aquatic ecosystems. The concentrations of
some elements were deter mined earlier in different biogenic samples, including aquatic organisms
(hydrobionts) and biogenic detrital substances [9, 10]. However, these data were based on a limited set of
organisms and elements. There are no published data on either gold (Au) content in Ceratophyllum demer
sum L. or interaction between Au nanoparticles and aquatic macrophytes. The goal of this work was to study
the immobilization of Au nanoparticles added to the water medium of microcosms in the presence of
macrophyte C. demersum L. This study was the first to determine the concentration of Au and some other
elements in C. demersum phytomass after incubation in microcosms containing Au nanosize particles
(NSPs). Results of the experiments: (1) the first data have been obtained that demonstrate that a significant
amount of Au NSPs may bind to live phytomass of an aquatic plant, C. demersum. As a result of binding
and/or immobilization, the content of Au was greater then the background level by a factor of 430.3; (2)
modification of NSPs with a protein (immunoglobulin) had no effect on the NSP immobilization by
macrophytes. The results contribute to understanding the role of these organisms in biogenic migration of
elements. These data give us the possibility to estimate the participation of phytomass of the studied
macrophyte species in element concentration (as exemplified by Au) in an aquatic system. REFERENCES: 1.

(Faculty of Biology, Moscow State University, Vorob’evy gory, Moscow, 119991 Russia) Abstract: The
study of water self-purification processes (Skurlatov, 1988; Ostroumov, 2000a) is essential for approaching
fundamental ecological problems (Alimov, 2000; Ostroumov et al., 2003) and for resolving some applied
issues related to the sustainable use of aquatic and biological resources. The purpose of this paper is to give a
systematic account of the concepts concerning the multiple functions of the biota in the self-purification of
water bodies and watercourses, without attempting to review the numerous publications in this field. In this
paper, a paradigm shift was made and some new principles of the theory of the ecological mechanism of
water self-purification based on multiple functions of the biota in freshwater and marine ecosystems were
formulated. In developing this theory, the results of the author’s experiments with aquatic organisms (filter-
feeders) have been used. As a result, the author discovered that the natural ecological mechanism which
maintains water quality (water self-purification mechanism) is vulnerable to the impact of some pollutants as
exemplified by synthetic detergents and surfactants. Conclusions drawn on the basis of the theory have
practical significance for biodiversity conservation and for the sustainable use of the biological resources of
aquatic ecosystems. 1067-4136/05/3606-0414 © 2005 Pleiades Publishing, Inc. Russian Journal of Ecology,

Macrophytes are important components of ecosystems and participate in the purification of water, which
contributes to the sustainability of water quality. This is especially important in conditions of pollution of
water bodies and water streams. Surfactants constitute an important class of pollutants. Therefore, further
investigation and clarification of the facts concerning the interaction of plants and various surfactants are
necessary. The present paper presents the results of investigations of the effect of various concentrations of
aqueous solutions of the anionic surfactant sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS) on the viability of the aquatic
macrophytes, the pondweed Potamogeton crispus L. When the effects of the anionic surfactant sodium
dodecyl sulphate on the aquatic macrophytes Potamogeton crispus L. were studied, it was found that the
concentrations of 83–133 mg/l caused fragmentation of the stems of plants. The tolerance of the plants to the
negative effects of the surfactant was higher in the spring (April) than in the autumn (September).

http://www.bookrags.com/research/assimilative-capacity-enve-01/ (definition of assimilative capacity)
[Assimilative capacity refers to the ability of the environment or a portion of the environment (such as a
stream, lake, air mass, or soil layer) to carry waste material without adverse effects on the environment or on
users of its resources. Pollution occurs only when the assimilative capacity is exceeded. Some
environmentalists argue that the concept of assimilative capacity involves a substantial element of value
judgement, i.e., pollution discharge may alter the flora and fauna of a body of water, but if it does not effect
organisms we value (e.g., fish) it is acceptable and within the assimilative capacity of the body of water. A
classical example of assimilative capacity is the ability of a stream to accept modest amounts of
biodegradable waste. Bacteria in a stream utilize oxygen to degrade the organic matter (or biochemical
oxygen demand) present in such a waste, causing the level of dissolved oxygen in the stream to fall; but the
decrease in dissolved oxygen causes additional oxygen to enter the stream from the atmosphere, a process
referred to as reaeration. A stream can assimilate a certain amount of waste and still maintain a dissolved
oxygen level high enough to support a healthy population of fish and other aquatic organisms. However, if
the assimilative capacity is exceeded, the concentration of dissolved oxygen will fall below the level required
to protect the organisms in the stream. Two other concepts are closely related: 1) critical load; and 2) self
purification. The term critical load is synonymous with assimilative capacity and is commonly used to refer
to the concentration or mass of a substance which, if exceeded, will result in adverse effects, i.e., pollution.
Self purification refers to the natural process by which the environment cleanses itself of waste materials
discharged into it. Examples include biodegradation of wastes by natural bacterial populations in water or
soil, oxidation of organic chemicals by photochemical reactions in the atmosphere, and natural dieoff of
disease causing organisms. Determining assimilative capacity may be quite difficult, since a substance may
potentially affect many different organisms in a variety of ways. In some cases, there is simply not enough
information to establish a valid assimilative capacity for a pollutant. If the assimilative capacity for a
substance can be determined, reasonable standards can be set to protect the environment and the allowable
waste load can be allocated among the various dischargers of the waste. If the assimilative capacity is not
known with certainty, then more stringent standards can be set, which is analogous to buying insurance (i.e.,
paying an additional sum of money to protect against potential future losses). Alternatively, if the cost of
control appears high relative to the potential benefits to the environment, a society may decide to accept a
certain level of risk. The Federal Water Pollution Control Amendments of 1972 established the elimination
of discharges of pollution into navigable waters as a national goal. More recently, pollution prevention has
been heavily promoted as an appropriate goal for all segments of society. Proper interpretation of these goals
requires a basic understanding of the concept of assimilative capacity. The intent of Congress was to prohibit
the discharge of substances in amounts that would cause pollution, not to require a concentration of zero.
Similarly, Congress voted to ban the discharge of toxic substances in concentrations high enough to cause
harm to organisms. Well meaning individuals and organizations sometimes exert pressure on regulatory
agencies and other public and private entities to protect the environment by ignoring the concept of
assimilative capacity and reducing waste discharges to zero or as close to zero as possible. Failure to utilize
the natural assimilative capacity of the environment not only increases the cost of pollution control (the cost
to the discharger and the cost to society as a whole); more importantly, it results in the inefficient use of
limited resources and, by expending materials and energy for something that nature provides free of charge,
results in an overall increase in pollution. This is the complete article, containing 658 words (approx. 2
pages at 300 words per page).]
