Innovative conceptualization of ecosystem’s biomachinery (a new scientific term that was proposed by the author; it means ecological mechanisms that include biological communities and biodiversity) which improves water quality. The innovative experimental data analysis, concepts, and generalizations in this article provide the fundamental elements of the new qualitative theory of biocontrol of water quality in a systematized form. The theory covers water self-purification in freshwater and marine ecosystems. The theory is supported by the results of the author’s experimental studies of the effects exerted by some chemical pollutants including synthetic surfactants, detergents, and other xenobiotics on aquatic organisms. The new fundamental conceptualization provides a basis for remediation of polluted aquatic ecosystems including purification of water bodies and streams, and briefly present the qualitative theory of the self-purification mechanism of aquatic ecosystems, phytoremediation and other types of technologies.

Publication 2.

This paper is the first publication that reported the concentrations of a number of rare earth elements in biodetritus. The rare earth elements are a key component of modern hi-technology products and they are a new component in the modern solid wastes and waste waters. This paper is an innovative and significant contribution to the database for modern environmental monitoring.

**

Biodetritus that formed over a 7-month period in microcosms with Viviparus viviparus, Unio pictorum , and Ceratophyllum demersum contained a number of elements. This is the first study to determine concentrations of some elements in biodetritus. Neutron activation analysis showed that the elements’ concentrations decrease in the following order: Ca > Zn > Ba > Br > Ce > Se > Nd > La > U > Hf > Sb > Th > Sm > S > Cs > Au. The data obtained contribute to understanding of the polyfunctional role of aquatic organisms in aquatic ecosystems.

A new set of criteria in order to answer the question was formulated in this paper: is a given chemical substance hazardous to environment or not? This paper formulated a fundamentally new solution to the problem of selecting criteria for identification and assessing environmental hazards of chemical pollutants, toxicants; the paper explains why the currently accepted set of criteria is non-efficient and leads to mistakes.

It is the first article in which the new experimental data of the author were analyzed to give new fresh insight into ecological mechanisms of eutrophication and abnormal increase in phytoplankton. Also, new insight in how ecosystem runs water self-purification.

A fundamentally new approach and methodology to study top-down control in ecosystems: the first introduction of what the author calls ‘inhibitory analysis’; the paper  presented a new insight in understanding that a decrease in activity of filter-feeders are part of the causes and mechanisms of eutrophication and algal blooms. The paper shows how to identify and measure this new factor which stimulates those negative phenomena.

This is a first publication to report both inhibitory and stimulation effects of a synthetic surfactant on  two unique strains of the ocean species of cyanobacteria Synechococcus from the collection of WHOI. These data demonstrated a new hazard of an umbalance of species composition of marine phytoplankton under the effect of pollution by synthetic chemical pollutants.

The non-ionogenic surfactant Triton X-100 acted differently on cyanobacteria Synechococcus WH 7805 and WH 8103: 5 mg/liter of the surfactant inhibited strain 7805 and favored the development of strain 8103. A lower concentration (0.5 mg/liter) stimulated the growth of both strains. Triton X-100 produced no effect on the motility of strain 8103 cells.

The first publication to report phytotoxicity of a synthetic polymeric surfactant. In an innovative bioassay with the higher plant Fagopyrum esculentum (buckwheat), the reaction of buckwheat cv. Shatilov-5 seedlings to pollution of the aqueous medium with polymeric surfactants – a copolymer of hexene and maleic aldehyde (CHMA), was investigated. It was shown that CHMA content in water with a concentration of the active substance of 0.4-0.9 mg/ml inhibited plant growth. The effect was shown with prolonged incubation of germinating seeds for 43-67 h or more. These data should be taken into account in analysing the possible ecological consequences of irrigating lands with waste waters and polluted waters.

This is a first publication to report a unique bioassay of synthetic surfactants using soil algae. Also, this is a first publication to report a juxtaposition of results of the  three methods of assessment of toxicity of a chemical: the methods that use (1) plant seedlings; (2) aquatic algae cultures; (3) soil algal cultures.

Experiments investigating the effects of the cationic surface active compound tetradecyl trimethylammonium bromide (TDTMA) on  a number of aquatic and soil algal cultures, and the seedlings of Fagopyrum esculentum are described, and the results presented. It is concluded that future studies on the effects of pollutants on algae should involve the use of several test systems (both  aquatic and soil algal cultures).

RIVISTA DI BIOLOGIA / BIOLOGY FORUM   ISSN 0035-6050

Founded in 1919, RIVISTA DI BIOLOGIA / BIOLOGY FORUM is one of the oldest biological journals in the world. It published articles by many prestigious Italian and international authors (such as E. Giglio-Tos, D. Rosa, J. Eccles, B. Goodwin, G. Webster, R. Thom, F. Varela, A. Lima-de-Faria).

It publishes researches in the fields of Theoretical Biology, in its broadest sense. It aims at going beyond specializations, discussing, before a multidisciplinary audience, biological subjects of general interest.

Rivista di Biologia / Biology Forum publishes researches in all fields of biology (such as Evolutionary Biology, Developmental Biology, Genetics, Biophysics, Biomathematics, History of Biology etc.), provided they are of general theoretical interest.

Articles are in English, with an Italian summary. A news section (mainly in Italian) publishes book reviews, brief news and readers’ letters (letters, either in English or in Italian, may be sent to [email protected] ).

RIVISTA DI BIOLOGIA / BIOLOGY FORUM is published three times a year (three issues per volume).

The editorial, the news section and the abstracts of the articles are available FREE OF CHARGE in PDF format. To read PDF files Acrobat Reader is required. It can be dowloaded for free from the Adobe site. It is possible to purchase on-line single articles in PDF, at the incentive cost of 6 euro each.

Amazing grace: nature’s machine to treat water, to purify water

The series of publications authored by Dr. S.A. Ostroumov (M.V. Lomonosov Moscow University) discovered the ecosystem’s machinery that functions as a hi-tech mechanism to make water clear and pure, safe for human consumption. This was a secret of water quality and sustainability. This secret was discovered.  In the table given at some of the sites mentioned below, the reference to the key publications are given. Also, examples are given of the papers that cited  Dr. S. Ostroumov’s works.   These works were cited by experts and scientists from countries as diverse as U.S.A., France, U.K., Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, Australia, Argentina, China, India…

The achievement that was cited:

The ecological theory of how aquatic ecosystem and the biological community function toward improving water quality (both in freshwater and in seawater) was formulated in the well-cited paper of a scientist of Moscow University. This theory, inter alia,  discovered and analyzed – to a better degree than it was done before – the multi-aspect role of aquatic organisms that are filter-feeders. This achievement was used by the authors of the new paper co-authored by scientists of Poland, China, Korea. They used the theory to better analyze their new data on marine bivalve mollusk, marine mussels Mytilus.

Discovery: Innovative conceptualization of how ecosystems improve water quality (water self-purification)

Innovative conceptualization of how ecosystems improve water quality (water self-purification)

[Item 1 in the Series of files entitled: Legendary Discoveries];

There are a lot questions that are of key interest in our studies of ecological mechanisms that regulate, modify and form water quality in surface aquatic ecosystems. These questions are listed below.

 

Besides microorganisms, do the other organisms play a key role in improving water quality?

Which processes are the main ones which contribute to water self-purification?

Which organisms play key roles in improving water quality in aquatic ecosystems?

Which organisms, freshwater or marine are more involved in improving water quality?

How biological, chemical and physical processes are interacting in ecosystem in improving water quality?

Is it possible to organize a multitude of factors and processes of water self-purification into a few groups (categories, blocks)?

Is the self-purification potential of an aquatic ecosystem a certain constant or a labile parameter?

Is the mechanism of water self-purification vulnerable to external impact on the aquatic ecosystem, e.g. to the impact of chemical pollution with synthetic chemicals?

Answer was given in the papers
