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.

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.

These countries, regions will benefit from the theory of water self-purification: http://5bio5.blogspot.com/2012/08/these-countries-regions-will-benefit.html

Question: IS THIS PAPER AVAILABLE IN OTHER LANGUAGES DIFFERENT FROM ENGLISH? Yes, it is available in Russian, see:

 On the biotic self-purification of aquatic ecosystems: elements of the theory. – DAN (Doklady Akademii Nauk), Vol. 396, 2004, No. 1, p. 136–141. [System of elements of the theory of biotic maintaining the natural purification potential of ecosystems]. The paper was awarded the honorary Diploma from the Academy of Water Sciences (2006). In Russ., translated into Eng.

**

Question: WHICH FUNDAMENTAL ASPECT OF BIOLOGY AND ECOLOGY IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE ISSUES OF SELF-PURIFICATION OF WATER?

Answer: In biology and ecology, one of the most fundamental and intriguing problems is stability of biological and ecological systems. What makes ecological systems stable under changing circumstances? In case of aquatic ecosystems, this issue is very much connected to the mystery of stability of aquatic habitats, i.e., water quality. This paper gives answers to that question.
