Biography, scientific achievements

The main scientific and technical achievements:
During studies of sructural-functional organization of soil algo-cyanobacterial communities bioindicational and biotechnological potential of cyanobacteria (CB) was found out, CB develop in specific natural, agricultural, urban, and technogenic ecosystems of the moderate zone of Russia.
1. Representatives of different species of hetero-cystic and non-hetero-cystic CB are a permanent compound of phototrophic microbe communities in natural ecosystems, they reach the peak of their development in late summer – early autumn both as for their florist diversity and the number of their populations.
2. In any soil type mass propagation of CB on the soil surface is possible (soil “flourishing”) when many-species cenoses are formed which include, apart from CB, representatives of eukaryote algae, micromycetes and different ecological-trophic groups of bacteria. Architectonics of soil “flourishing” is characterized by close classical types of relations of phototrophs with heterotrophic partners on the level of physical, trophic, and allelopathic contacts. Mechanical damage of “fourishing” biofilms leads to a comparatively quick “self'-repair” of this community with return to the damaged structure.
3. Bioindication role of CB is the most prominent in agroecosystems, it reflects the level of biogenic elements both at their exhaustion and their abundance. For example, appearing of surface transformed without CB component, especially of nitrogen-fixing species at the end of vegetation period proves that soil is overloaded with technical nitrogen and indicates further unfavourable consequences of the phenomenon.
4. In soils of urban and technogenic territories under constant influence of various chemical pollutants special groups of CB develop. Chemical pollution of the territories interferes with the course of different natural successions, so that a successive change of eukaryot and prokaryot photottrophs takes place. Occupying the eco-niches with an increased amount of heavy metals, arsenic, organophosphorous compounds and other toxicants takes place mostly due to all-year-round dominance of non-heterocystic CB of the genus Phormidium (Ph. autumnale, Ph. boryanum, Ph. formosum) and Leptolyngbya (l. fragilis, L. foveolarum, L. angustissimma).
Biotesting with the help of CB adequately reflects the level of chemical pollution of the environment.
1. Natural biofilms Nostoc commune definitely react to soil pollution, they are poly-specious natural microbe-cenoces consisting of cyanobacteria, algae, micromycetes, and different ecological-physiological groups of saprophyte cyanobacteria. The structure of such complexes and their mechanical resistance are determined by a number slime-forming, mycelium, and thread forms, as a consequence firm films are formed. Changes in ecotops are connected with mineral and organic pollutants causing change of biofilms communities structures. Under the influence of heavy metal salts, arsenic, sodium chloride, azides, pyrophosphates and metylphosphonic acid the number of algae and CB gets much smaller, and the density of their cells decreases. N. commune and other heterocystic CB lose their dominance, non-heterocystic species of CB become dominant, such as Phormidium formosum, Ph. boryanum, Ph. uncinatum, Leptolyngbya foveolarum. The number of heterotrophic nitrogen-fixing bacteria decreases. The role of micromycets in biofilms structure increases, especially of their melanin forms.
Thus N. commune biolims can be used as test biosystems at determining the level of soil pollution as for the level of inhibition or domination of some definite community members.
2. It is shown that a simple express method of precise biotesting of toxicity of mineral and organic pollutants consists in determining vital capacity of cells of pure growth of nitrogen-fixing heterocyctic species of CB of the genus Nostoc (N. paludosum, N. linckia, N. muscorum) according to their dehydrogenase activity with the help of triphenil tetrazolium chloride.
