Modernizing education.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/53784108/Modernizing-education-Ostroumov; S.A. Ostroumov
(Russia, Moscow) Up-dating and modernizing education in environmental science and ecology:
using interdisciplinary concepts. M.V.Lomonosov Moscow State University, 119991, Russian
Federation, Moscow,
The goal of this publication (which is written on the basis of [14]) is to analyze some specific
examples of the educational use of a series of the scientific monographs in two important areas of
modern ecological science, relevant to the new discipline of biochemical ecology, and to the
equally or even more important area of conservation biology. In 1986, the book ‘Introduction to
Biochemical Ecology’ was published, in which new fundamental concepts of ecology were
developed. In the book, the basics of the new scientific discipline of biochemical ecology were
formulated, and the new concepts and terms ‘ecological chemomediators’ and ‘ecological
chemoregulators’ were proposed (Ostroumov, 1986). Later, the presentation of those concepts and
terms was repeated in another book, ‘Introduction to Problems of Biochemical Ecology’
(Telitchenko, Ostroumov, 1990). We also coauthored books on conservation of biodiversity
(Yablokov, Ostroumov, 1983, 1985; 1991). In those books, a new conceptual approach –
according to the levels of organization of life systems - was used to classify and to put into a
system the data on the contemporary man-made impact on the biosphere. The books (Ostroumov,
1986; Telitchenko, Ostroumov, 1990; Yablokov, Ostroumov, 1983, 1985; 1991) provided the new
concepts that helped organize and put into a logical and modern system a massive body of factual
information. Some information on how those books have been used in educating students in
ecology and other academic disciplines is given below in Tables 1-4.

Концентрации тяжелых металлов Cu, Zn, Cd, Pb в воде экспериментальных микрокосмов
измеряли методом инверсионной вольтамперометрии. В некоторых микрокосмах
инкубировали водные растения (макрофиты) Ceratophyllum demersum (роголистник).
Измеряемые этим методом концентрации металлов в воде микрокосмов с макрофитами
снижались значительно быстрее, чем в воде контрольных микрокосмов без растений.
Впервые в водной системе, моделирующей комплексное загрязнение воды четырьмя
токсичными тяжелыми металлами (медь, цинк, кадмий, свинец), для всех четырех
металлов установлен факт положительной роли растений C. demersum как фактора,
способствующего уменьшению концентрации металлов в воде. Выявленные факты вносят

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 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). Keywords: environmental

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

INTRODUCTION We have only "one biosphere to disturb, to manage, to cherish, to understand,
to love" (Margalef [1997]). As we enter the 21st century, we seek to formulate research priorities
to complement current efforts for better understanding and unraveling the complexity of ecological
processes that occur in the biosphere. “Where shall ecology go, ... and which will be the
battlefields of ecology?” (Lindström et al., [1999]). Many authors contributed to analysis of the
fundamental problems and priorities of modern ecology (e.g., Bezel et al., [1994]; Rigler and
Peters [1995]; Reynolds [1997]; Mooney [1998]; Alimov [2000]). The goal of this paper is to
continue formulating the priorities in ecological studies in order to optimize the effort of
researchers in this fundamentally important area of science. 2. THE LIST OF PRIORITIES IN
ECOLOGICAL RESEARCH The list of priorities given below is not intended to be exhaustive,
but rather to highlight those research areas we consider to be the most important toward solving
critical ecological problems over the next decade and beyond. The list of research items is not in
order of importance. Variants of some priorities are given as the variations in wording may become
important in future. The list of the priorities follows: 1. Interactions among ecosystems; 2.

environmental and ecological hazards of man-made chemicals (pollutants) is vulnerable to
criticism. In this paper, a new concept of the system of approaches towards criteria for evaluating
the ecological hazard from man-made impact is proposed. It is suggested to assess the man-made
impacts (including effects of pollutants and xenobiotics) on the biota according to the following
four levels of disturbance in biological and ecological systems: (1) the level of individual
responses; (2) the level of aggregated responses of groups of organisms; (3) the level of stability
and integrity of the ecosystem; (4) the level of contributions of the ecosystem to biospheric
processes. On the basis of the author's experimental studies, an example is given of how to apply
the proposed approach and the system of criteria to the analysis of concrete experimental data. To
exemplify the efficiency of the proposed approach, it is shown how to use it to analyze new data
on effects of a synthetic surfactant on water filtering by bivalves. It is concluded that the proposed
approach will be helpful in better assessing environmental and ecological hazards from
anthropogenic effects on biota, including effects of man-made chemicals polluting ecosystems.
1.INTRODUCTION One of the important tasks in preventing and mitigating changes in the
biosphere is to perform an objective analysis of the hazards of a great many man-made impacts and
disturbances on the state of the biota (the world-wide diversity of ecosystems, populations, and
organisms). The multitude, diversity, and scale of anthropogenic effects has been described and

Question. Self-purification. What is self-purification? Answer: Self-purification is the complex
process, or, more precisely, a set of natural processes in aquatic ecosystems, which lead to
improving or maintaining water quality. Another term with a similar, but not completely the same
meaning: assimilative capacity. Question. What kind of journal had published this paper? Answer:
This is a high rank journal that is indexed by PubMed and Web of Science. More detail on the
journal see at the site:
http://www.researchgate.net/profile/Sergei_Ostroumov/blog/8962_publications_were_published_i
n_the_journal_Doklady_Biological_Sciences Question: How broad is the geographical range of
the area of potential relevance and application of the conclusions that were made in the paper?
Answer: Just look on where the paper was cited: it was cited by the authors of other scientific
articles who conducted their research in Europe, North America, and Asia (e.g., in China).
Question: Where the results and conclusions of the paper could be applied? Answer: the results
presented in the paper could be applied in explaining and predicting the behaviour of aquatic
ecosystems, in securing the safety of the sources of water supply, in protecting biodiversity of
aquatic organisms, in aquaculture, and in education.

****************** Question: which new aspects of environmental hazards from chemicals
were identified in the book and other concomitant publications of the same author (Dr.S.A.
Ostroumov)? Answer: Several new types of environmental hazards from chemical pollution were
identified in the book and in some other publications of the same author. One of those hazards is a
risk of damage to natural processes of ecological remediation. Those processes lead to water self-
purification in natural aquatic ecosystems (both freshwater and marine aquatic ecosystems). We
published a special paper that is focused on this issue. See: Ostroumov S.A. Identification of a new

Question. Self-purification. What is self-purification? Answer: Self-purification is the complex
process, or, more precisely, a set of natural processes in aquatic ecosystems, which lead to
improving or maintaining water quality. Another term with a similar, but not completely the same
meaning: assimilative capacity. Question. What kind of journal had published this paper? Answer:
This is a high rank journal that is indexed by PubMed and Web of Science. More detail on the
journal see at the site:

n_the_journal_Doklady_Biological_Sciences Question: How broad is the geographical range of
the area of potential relevance and application of the conclusions that were made in the paper?
Answer: Just look on where the paper was cited: it was cited by the authors of other scientific
articles who conducted their research in Europe, North America, and Asia (e.g., in China).
Question: Where the results and conclusions of the paper could be applied? Answer: the results
presented in the paper could be applied in explaining and predicting the behaviour of aquatic
ecosystems, in securing the safety of the sources of water supply, in protecting biodiversity of
aquatic organisms, in aquaculture, and in education.

POLYFUNCTIONAL ROLE OF BIODIVERSITY IN PROCESSES LEADING TO WATER
PURIFICATION: CURRENT CONCEPTUALIZATIONS AND CONCLUDING REMARKS

Sustainable use of aquatic resources is based on the ability of aquatic ecosystems to maintain a
certain level of water quality. Water self-purification in both freshwater and marine ecosystems is
based on a number of interconnected processes (e.g., Wetzel, 1983; Spellman, 1996; Ostroumov
1998, 2000). Among them are: (1) physical and physico-chemical processes, including: (1.1)
solution and dilution of pollutants; (1.2) export of pollutants to the adjacent land areas; (1.3) export
of pollutants to the adjacent water bodies; (1.4) sorption of pollutants onto suspended particles and
further sedimentation of the latter; (1.5) sorption of pollutants by sediments; (1.6) evaporation of
pollutants; (2) chemical processes, including: (2.1) hydrolysis of pollutants; (2.2) photochemical
transformations; (2.3) redox-catalytic transformations; (2.4) transformations including free
radicals; (2.5) binding of pollutants by dissolved organic matter, which may lead to decreasing
toxicity; (2.6) chemical oxidation of pollutants by oxygen; (3) biological processes, including:
(3.1) sorption, uptake and accumulation of pollutants by organisms; (3.2) biotransformations
(redox reactions, degradation, conjugation), mineralization of organic matter; (3.3) transformation
of pollutants by extracellular enzymes; (3.4) removal of suspended matter and pollutants from the
water column in the process of water filtering by filter-feeders; (3.5) removal of pollutants from
the water in the process of sorption by pellets excreted by aquatic organisms; (3.6) uptake of
nutrients (including P, N, and organic molecules) by organisms; (3.7) biotransformation and
sorption of pollutants in soil (and removal of nutrients), important when polluted waters are in
contact with terrestrial ecosystems; (3.8) a network of regulatory processes when certain organisms
control or influence other organisms involved in water purification. Living organisms are involved
in physical, physico-chemical and chemical processes 1.1-1.6 and 2.1-2.6 directly or through
excretion of oxygen or organic metabolites, production of suspended matter, affecting turbidity,
temperature of water or other parameters of the ecosystem. As a result, living organisms are the
core component of the multitude of processes of the ecological machinery working towards
improving water quality. This component performs eight vital functions directly (3.1-3.8) and is
involved indirectly in some of the other twelve functions (1.1-1.6 and 2.1-2.6) so that its role is
clearly polyfunctional. Living organisms of aquatic bodies (both autotrophs and heterotrophs) are
enormously diverse in terms of taxonomy. Among them, autotrophs generate oxygen that is
involved in the processes 2.6 and 2.4 above. Heterotrophs perform processes 3.1, 3.2, 3.4, 3.5 and
some others. Virtually all biodiversity is involved. Given this polyfunctional role of aquatic
organisms, in one of our publications we compared aquatic ecosystems to 'large-scale diversified
bioreactors with a function of water purification' (Ostroumov, 2000). What is interesting about the
biomachinery of water purification is the fact that it is an energy-saving device. It is using the
energy of the sun (autotrophs) and the energy of organic matter which is being oxidized in the

Abstract Top-down control is an important type of interspecies interactions in food webs. It is
especially important for aquatic ecosystems. Phytoplankton grazers contribute to the top-down
control of phytoplankton populations. The paper is focused on the role of benthic filter feeders in
the control of plankton populations as a result of water filtering and the removal of cells of
plankton from the water column. New data on the inhibitory effects of surfactants and detergents
on benthic filter-feeders (Unio tumidus, U. pictorum, Mytilus galloprovincialis, M. edulis, and
Crassostrea gigas) are presented and discussed. Importance and efficiency of that approach to the
problems of eutrophication and water self-purification is pointed out. Chemical pollution may pose
a threat to the natural top-down control of phytoplankton and water self-purification process. The
latter is considered an important prerequisite for sustainable use of aquatic resources.

Academician D.S. Pavlov April 15, 2001; ABSTRACT: New conceptualization: the article
presents a new vision of how biodiversity helps towards better stability and water quality. The
author made an innovative analysis of his experimental data and formulated the following
suggestion: to maintain water quality, it is vital to protect the functionally active biodiversity of
water ecosystems. In other words, according to his vision, the protection of functionally active
biodiversity, including filter-feeders, is a key to maintenance of water quality. Among new facts
that were found by the author and presented in the paper: the detergent IXI 20 mg/L inhibited
water filtration by marine mussels Mytilus galloprovincialis (3-25 min, 18 pro mille, 22.8ºC); the
detergent Deni-Automat 30 mg/L also inhibited the water filtration by oysters Crassostrea gigas

experiments on how surfactants [tetradecyltrimethylammonium bromide (TDTMA)], and synthetic
detergents inhibited the control of plankton (algae Monochrystis lutheri) by marine mussels
