[In the paper, the author developed a new approach to analyze the fundamental ecological issue, the
interactions between organisms in ecosystems. He suggested to use the methodology of inhibitory
analysis to study interactions in trophic chains. Important situation is the top–down control of
plankton by benthic filter-feeders. This control, as author’s experiments have shown, might be
removed by chemical inhibitors (the latter may enter the ecosystem as pollutants)].

formation of water quality; (2) biogeochemical flows of C, N, P and other constituents of biomass;
(3) formation of deposits of organic matter as bottom sediments. All those hazards are generated by
chemical pollutants that act as uncouplers of pelagial-benthal coupling (a new term and concept

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

24. A new concept of ecosystem as a bioreactor: Aquatic ecosystem as a bioreactor: water
purification and some other functions. Rivista di Biologia / Biology Forum, 2004, 97: 39-50.
Abstracts in Eng. and Italian. [A fundamental concept is proposed of aquatic ecosystem as a
bioreactor that carries out the function of water purification in natural water bodies and streams.
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 water filtration performed by the molluscs Unio tumidus, U. pictorum, M.
galloprovincialis and inhibition of feeding by Limnaea stagnalis emphasized the potential
ecological hazard from sublethal concentrations of pollutants (including those exemplified by
synthetic surfactants and detergents).

were presented in one paper. The xenobiotics tested represented anionic, cationic and non-ionic
surfactants (tetradecyltrimethylammonium bromide, TDTMA, a representative of a class of cationic
surfactants; sodium dodecyl sulphate, SDS, a representative of anionic alkyl sulfates; and Triton X-
100, a representative of non-ionic hydroxyethylated alkyl phenols). Negative effects of SDS,
TDTMA, and Triton X-100 on the filtration activity of marine mussels M. edulis and M. edulis / M.

publication of the negative effects of a cationic surfactant on Atlantic mussels Mytilus. The

of a new theory for the biological mechanism for water self-purification are presented. Hydrobionts
(aquatic organisms) are actively involved in various processes leading to water purification. Not
only microorganisms (bacteria, cyanobacteria and fungi), but also algae, plants, invertebrates, and
many other groups of organisms are involved, which is discussed and analyzed in the paper. Results
of the author's experiments that study the effects of various pollutants on aquatic organisms
(freshwater and marine bivalves) are given. The theory is an innovative basis for developing
ecological technologies to clean water and to upgrade its quality by using organisms and
ecosystems [http://scindeks.nb.rs/article.aspx?artid=0354-32850750015O].

(Faculty of Biology, MoscowStateUniversity, Leninskie Gory, Moscow, 119991 Russia). Abstract:
A new set of ecological generalizations formulated in this paper represent, in a 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.

Abstract: In the paper, the author proposed a new 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 (algae
Monochrystis lutheri) by marine 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; http://www.scribd.com/doc/45911405; http://sites.google.com/site/2001dbs377p139inhibitory/;

New data on coupling of geochemical and ecological (hydrobiological) processes. The role of freshwater mollusks Lymnaea stagnalis
in the flows of chemical elements in the biosphere was studied by detecting the elemental composition and amount of pellets
produced by the mollusks. For the first time, the following was quantitatively studied: the elemental composition (C, N, P, Si, Al) of
pellets formed by mollusks Lymnaea stagnalis feeding on the leaves of higher plants Nuphar lutea and Taraxacum officinale; the
amount (wet weight, dry weight) of pellets formed by L. stagnalis feeding on the leaves of N. lutea and T. officinale; the transfer of
matter and chemical elements (C, N, P, Si, Al) with pellets of freshwater bivalves (unionids Unio sp., etc.) per unit biomass of mollusks
and per unit area of the ecosystem of the river; the transfer of matter and chemical elements (C, N, P, Si, Al) with pellets of L. stagnalis
per unit biomass of mollusks and per unit area of the ecosystem of the pond. Synthetic surfactants ТDТМА 2 mg/l, SDS 1-2 mg/l,
detergent Tide-Lemon 75 mg/l inhibited the trophic activity of L. stagnalis. Percents of food assimilability of taxons of invertebrates,

1608-3105 (Online). Distributed by 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;

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).]; DOI10.1023/A:1015385723150; https://www.researchgate.net/file.FileLoader.html?

approach to the analysis of ecological hazards of anthropogenic effects on the biota (the new conceptualization proposed by the

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 impairment of the second type. DOI 10.1007/s10750-004-1875-1;

Abstract: 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). DOI:10.3103/S0096392507040074;
