The paper presents some new ideas and new facts:

** NEW IDEAS: The article presents a new concept of how biodiversity helps towards better stability and water quality, in other words, how biodiversity is involved in the ecosystem services. The author made an innovative analysis of his experimental data which led to the following fundamental conclusion: to maintain water quality, it is vital to protect the functionally active biodiversity of water ecosystems. In other words, according to this article, the protection of functionally active, including filter-feeders, is a key to maintenance of water quality.
** NEW FACTS. Among new facts: the laundry detergent (exemplified by a common detergent IXI) 20 mg/L inhibited water filtration by bivalves, marine mussels Mytilus galloprovincialis; in another series of experiments, the laundry detergent (exemplified by the detergent Deni-Automat) 30 mg/L also inhibited the water filtration by another species of bivalve mollusks, namely, oyster Crassostrea gigas.

New insight into ecosystem services. Article titled: On the biotic self-purification of aquatic ecosystems: elements of the theory

A new insight into ecosystem services was provided in the article titled:

On the biotic self-purification of aquatic ecosystems: elements of the theory. Article.

One of key benefits from normal function of healthy aquatic ecosystems is  the provisioning of clean  water, in other words, maintaining proper water quality (which is a result of water self-purification in ecosystem).  Until the time of publishing this article, no consistent and multi-faceted theory of water self-purification had existed. This article is the first publication to formulate such a theory that  elucidates and integrates multiple roles of aquatic organisms involved, including not only microorganisms but also macroorganisms, e.g., higher plants and invertebrates. Both plankton and benthic organisms are involved and their roles were discovered and analyzed in this article.
A more detailed description of the content of this paper:
This article presents a  new theory of biotic (biological) maintaining the natural purification potential of aquatic ecosystems. The fundamental elements are formulated for a qualitative theory of the multifunctional (polyfunctional) role of the biota (the biological community of aquatic organisms) in improving water quality and doing water self-purification in aquatic ecosystems. The  theory covers the following:
the sources of energy for the mechanisms of water self-purification;
the main functional blocks of the system of self-purification;
the system of the main processes that are involved;
the analysis of the degree of participation of the main large taxa; the reliability of the mechanisms of water self-purification; regulation of the processes;
the response of the mechanisms of water self-purification towards the external influences (man-made impacts, pollution);
and some conclusions relevant to the practice of environment protection.
In support of the theory, the results are given of the author’s experiments which demonstrated the ability of some pollutants (surfactants, detergents, and some others) to inhibit the water filtration activity of aquatic invertebrate filter-feeders, namely, the bivalve mollusks, including mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis, Mytilus edulis), and oysters (Crassostrea gigas).

Biocontrol of water quality: Multifunctional role of biota in water self-purification.

Abstract:

Review, opinion paper. The experimental data analysis, concepts, and generalizations in this article provide the fundamental elements of the qualitative theory of biocontrol  (biological control, biological regulation, role of biological community) 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 theory 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. This theory is useful to develop phytoremediation and other types of innovative  technologies to improve water quality.

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 (freshwater mussels Unio tumidus, U. pictorum, marine mussels Mytilus galloprovincialis, M. edulis, and oysters 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.

This  article reports new experimental data on ecotoxicology. This is an ecology article in a peer-reviewed scientific journal; new data on environmental hazards from water pollution with synthetic detergents;

Unio tumidus is the Latin name for the common freshwater bivalve mollusk (freshwater mussels). New toxic effects of low concentrations of detergents (which are mixtures of chemicals including surfactants) were discovered in this article. The article presents both new facts and new concepts that are relevant to improvement of water quality and pollution control.
