[book] Ecology, Biocoenology and Nature Conservation. Moscow University Press. Moscow,
1984. [In co-authorship].
[book] Introduction to Biochemical Ecology. 1986. Moscow. Moscow University Press. 176 p.
Figures, tables. Bibliogr.: pp. 168-174. [Analyzed in the book: Ecological roles of natural and
man-made chemicals. Inter alia, some problems of chemical communication and regulation in
natural populations and ecosystems, environmental toxicology and chemistry and QSAR.
Ecological functions of secondary metabolites of bacteria, fungi, algae, plants, invertebrates and
vertebrates. There are no other books on biochemical ecology in the international literature that
analyzes so broad diversity of data on metabolites of various taxons. Several published reviews
indicated that the book broke a fresh ground and extended the frontiers of ecology. Some new
concepts suggested, namely ‘ecological chemomediators’ and ‘ecological chemoregulators’ in
ecosystems]. Translated into Polish and Bulgarian languages.

S.A.O.]. This work examines the problems arising from the deterioration of the environment and
covers the issues of conservation and biodiversity protection at the molecular-genetic, the
ontogenetic, the species-population and the ecosystem levels. The book offers suggestions
concerning changes in practice in agriculture, industry, recreation etc. – in all sectors of society
life and functioning. The deterioration of the environment has become one of the most serious
problems of the twentieth century. The 12 chapters in this book: (1) the dangerous extent of
human impact on the biosphere; (2) molecular genetic level; (3) problems at the ontogenetic
level; (4) problems at the species-population level; (5) problems at the ecosystem level; (6)
economic problems; (7) organizational and legal problems of the protection of living nature; (8)
problems of prognostication; (9) protection of living nature and its connection with other global
problems; (10) need for ecologization of society's activities; (11) ways of preserving living
nature; and (12) scientific foundations and theory of living nature protection within the system of
biological science. The authors analyze the problems of conservation and suggest ways of
helping to solve them. http://www.cababstractsplus.org/abstracts/Abstract.aspx?

tab. Bibliogr.: pp. 264-304 (716 refs.) ISBN 5-317-00323-7. From the Foreword written by Dr.
S. McCutcheon (U.S. E.P.A.): "Sergei Ostroumov is pioneering the application of ecological and
biological principles to redefine assimilative capacity, especially beyond the effects of bacteria…
I look forward to developing … the emerging field of phytoremediation … based on general
concepts that I see Dr. Ostroumov developing …".
The book begins with a chapter entitled, "Anthropogenic Impacts and Synthetic Surfactants as Pollutants
of Aquatic Ecosystems," a clear signal as to author S. Ostroumov's concerns and focus. The hardbound
work provides a foundation for exploration of the effects that hazardous wastes (containing surfactants)
produce in both freshwater and marine ecosystems. The text presents information on actions required for
remediation and restoring water quality. Approaches to counteract "toxic effects of man made surfactants
using biological methods, including phytoremediation," are also discussed in the 296-page work, as well
as protection measures to improve water quality.
The book contains 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 organisms
studied included bacteria and cyanobacteria, algae, flagellates, higher plants, and invertebrates (molluscs,
annelids). The results are discussed and analyzed in connection with assessing the ecological hazards of
anthropogenic impact 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 science, geosciences, the science of the biosphere and global change, ecotoxicology, as
well as to university professors, graduate students and educators. (Diploma of the Academy of Aquatic

author's publications and results in studying the biotic mechanism for maintaining water quality
and for self-purification of freshwater and marine waters. The publication is based on the
author's experimental studies of both freshwater and marine organisms, which were carried out
in Russia, Ukraine, Great Britain and other countries. Short summary of the theory is given as
well as some practical recommendation leading to sustainable use of water and aquatic biological
resources.

[=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

Review: Ermakov V.V. (Prof., Head of Lab. of Biogeochemistry, Russ. Acad. Sci.) About the book
by S.A. Ostroumov «Aquatic organisms in self-purification of water and the biogenic migration of
elements» // Water: Chemistry and Ecology [ISSN 2072-8158]. 2009. No. 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.

6. 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).
