The Effect of Synthetic Surfactants on the Hydrobiological Mechanisms of Water Self-Purification

  • S. A. Ostroumov
Article

Abstract

Long-term studies of the biological effect of surfactants, including the effect surfactants exert on filter feeders, are reviewed. The role of filter feeders in the functioning of freshwater and marine ecosystems is analyzed. New aspects in the assessment of environmental hazard due to the impact of chemical pollutants, including surfactants and detergents, are established.
