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: 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.
