The first English language monograph on environmental hazards and ecotoxicity of detergents and synthetic surface active substances, surfactants. A new are of environmental toxicology. Absolutely new facts on environmental hazards from surfactants. Ecotoxicology of procaryotic and eucariotic microorganisms, higher plants, aquatic invertebrates who are filter-feeders and filter water - freshwater, marine water. Unique new data on shellfish which are vital organisms to aquaculture, including valuable seafood, mussels and oysters.Biological Effects of Surfactants. http://ru.scribd.com/doc/136214308/http://5bio5.blogspot.com/2013/04/biological-effects-of-surfactants-book.htmlCRC Press. Taylor & Francis. Boca Raton, London, New York. 2006. 279 p., tab. Bibliogr. on pages 203-243 and 250-253. Subject Index: p.255-279. ISBN 0-8493-2526-9. ISBN 13: 9780849325267. [Electronic book text: ISBN: 6610517002; ISBN 13: 9786610517008; Publication date: 15 December 2005]; ISBN 0-8493-2526-9. (Diploma of the Academy of Aquatic Sciences, awarded in 2006). http://scipeople.com/publication/67906/ ; The book summarizes the 20-year research done by the author and over 90 author's research publications in many Russian and international editions as well as hundreds of publications of other scientists. The book contains new detailed information on the results of the author’s studies of the biological effects of synthetic surfactants and detergents on autotrophic and heterotrophic, prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms. The chemicals included anionic, non-ionic and cationic surfactants, as well as several types of detergents. The freshwater and marine organisms studied included bacteria and cyanobacteria, algae, flagellates, seedlings of higher plants, and invertebrates (mollusks, annelids). The results are discussed and analyzed in connection with new priorities in assessing the ecological hazards of chemical pollution and xenobiotics on the biosphere and hydrosphere, studying water purification in aquatic ecosystems, and setting new priorities in the area of environmental protection. The book is of interest to scientists who conduct research in relevant areas of ecology, limnology, oceanography, hydrobiology, environmental sciences, water sciences, geosciences, the science of the biosphere and global change, ecotoxicology, as well as to university professors, graduate students and educators. The book is also of interest to those who are involved in environmental management and assessment, environmental law and regulation. The book is also of interest to companies that make dispersants to clean oil spills, shampoos, laundry detergents, detergents for cars, and other detergents. Opinion of Dr. Steven C. McCutcheon about the book, from his Preface: "I am pleased to have this opportunity to comment on the scientific leadership of Sergei A. Ostroumov. The book is highly recommended to those who are involved in studying ecology and solving environmental problems". - Steven C. McCutcheon, Ph.D., University of Georgia and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; President of the American Society of Ecological Engineering. ** Contents: ** Anthropogenic Impacts and Synthetic Surfactans as Pollutants of Aquatic Ecosystems: ** * Criteria and Priorities in Assessing the Hazardous Impacts on Aquatic Biota; ** * Ecological Hazard and Ecosystemic Consequences of the Effect of Anthropogenic Substances on Aquatic Organisms; ** * Biological Effects of Substances and the Need of Refining the Arsenal of Biotesting Methods; ** * Substantiating the Need for Further Research into Biological Effects of Synthetic Surfactants; ** * Ambiguity of Biological Effects Caused by Surfactants; ** * Pollution of Aquatic Ecosystems by Synthetic Surfactants; ** * Synthetic Surfactants and Self-Purification of Water Including its Filtration by Mollusks; Organisms and Methods: ** * Organisms: Substantiation of Choice and Aspects of Methods Used; ** * Chemical Substances Used; Biolo
