an inhibitory effect on the ability of the planktonic filter-feeder Daphnia magna to remove
phytoplankton from water during their filtration activity. Daphnia were kept under laboratory
conditions in vessels and fed with phytoplankton: green algae Scenedesmus quadricauda (Turp.)
Breb.). After filtration for 6–24 h in the presence of SDS at concentrations 5 and 10 mg/l, the
abundance of S. quadricauda cells in water was higher than in the control. At the lower SDS
concentrations (0.1, 0.5, and 1 mg/l), differences in the abundance of algal cells relative to the
control were observed after 3 h of incubation and disappeared after 6–24 h of incubation. The
calculation of the mean rate of algae removal by daphnia showed that this parameter decreased
within the first 3 h after the beginning of incubation in the presence of SDS. Thus, the results of
our experiments demonstrated that SDS decreases the rate of water filtration by the planktonic
crustaceans D. magna.

was discovered that plant biomass help towards restoration the water quality in the system which
was polluted with a synthetic surfactant. Addition of sodium dodecylsulphate (SDS) to water
rapidly changed the surface tension of water in the microcosm. The measurements demonstrated
that the surface tension of water in the microcosm with the macrophyte OST1 restored to the
level which was close to that of pure water within less than three days. As soon as after 46-h
incubation of the system containing the plant phytomass, the surface tension increased
significantly and reached that of distilled water. In the variants with water without plant
phytomass, restoration of the normal surface tension was much longer (about 17 days). The
results demonstrated an accelerated restoration of the normal surface tension which was typical
of pure water in those systems that contained SDS in the presence of the phytomass of the
macrophyte OST1. This is consistent with the conclusion that the macrophyte accelerates the
disappearance of the surfactant from water.______

Number 2. P.32-35. Bibliogr. 10 refs. Microcosms with the macrophytes were studied in
laboratory experiments. The effects of sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS) on macrophytes were
studied . The survival and weight of the biomass of macrophytes in a prolonged incubation were
recorded. SDS was added in the form of repeated (recurrent) additions. The increase in the
amount of SDS after each addition was: 0,5, 0,8, 1,7, 8,3, 16,7, 50,0 and 100,0 mg in 1 dm3.
Duration of survival of plants decreased with increasing amount of SDS in one addition. If the
amount of SDS (after a single addition) increased 200 times (from 0.5 to 100 mg / l), the period
of survival decreased 53-fold (from 372 up to 7 days). In the presence of SDS, a decrease in
macrophyte biomass was observed. The degree of the reduction of biomass depended on the total
amount of SDS added to the microcosms.

chemicals produced by organisms in the interorganismal interactions, in communication and
regulation of supraorganismal systems. Another part of the science of biochemical ecology deals
with the fate and transformation of external chemicals when they interact with organisms. Both
natural chemicals and the man-made chemicals are of importance for biochemical ecology.
Fundamental concepts of biochemical ecology include ecological chemomediators and
ecological chemoregulators, which have been included into the modern scientific concepts and

was detected using neutron activation analysis (NAA). The new data added some new
information to the modern vision of the polyfunctional role of aquatic organisms (the biota) in
the migration of elements in water ecosystems.

http://scipeople.com/publication/67785/; ABSTRACT. The experimental results were obtained
to demonstrate that one of the most important ecological rehabilitation processes (the process of
improving water quality by the removal of suspended matter from water by filter-feeders) is
inhibited by a pollutant (a xenobiotic). This fact and some other considerations suggest some
analogy between repair processes at genetic and ecosystem level. Author’s experiments have
shown that the group of xenobiotics which cause adverse effects on ecological mechanisms for
improving water quality includes surface-active agents (surfactants), detergents, heavy metals,
and other chemicals. The author’s experiments have discovered the inhibitory effects of
tetradecyltrimethylammonium bromide on the filtration activity of the natural hybrid mussel
population of Mytilus edulis × M. galloprovincialis. KEY WORDS: water quality, pollutants,
xenobiotics, rehabilitation, surfactants, detergents, metals, tetradecyltrimethylammonium
bromide, marine mussels, Mytilus edulis, Mytilus galloprovincialis.

freshwater microcosms with molluscs Viviparus viviparus and macrophytes Ceratophyllum

atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS). The concentrations decreased in the order: Fe > Mn >
Zn > Cu > Pb >As> Со > Cd > Cr. If a mixture of some metals was added to the water of the
microcosm, those metals (Со, Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, Со, Cd, Cr) were found in the detritus at
concentrations higher than in the control. The most pronounced increase was found for the
concentration of Cd (increase by the factor of over 3), Со (increase by the factor of over 13),
and for Cr (increase by the factor of over 150). The new data confirm the recent theory of the
polyfunctional role of the biota in water quality control and water self-purification (Doklady

http://scipeople.com/publication/69766/ . This is the first time it was shown that the
nanoparticles of gold (Au) in substantial amount bind to the living biomass of the aquatic
macrophyte, Ceratophyllum demersum. The concentrations of Au were measured in the samples
of the phytomass using neutron activation analysis (NAA). As a result of the binding and/or
immobilization of the nanoparticles, the amount of Au in the samples of the phytomass
increased manifold (by a factor of 430) above the background level of gold in the plant tissues.
The increase was by two orders of magnitude. The new data added some new information to the
modern vision of the multifunctional role of the biota in the migration of elements in aquatic
ecosystems. Also, the result added new information to the studies of interactions of Au with
organisms that may contribute to new biotechnologies.
