Ecohydrology is an emerging new sub-discipline which links elements of ecology with hydrology at all points in the water cycle, ranging in scale from water-plant physiological relationships to whole catchment water-ecosystem processes. This book pays most attention to the larger scales of ecohydrology, emphasizing the use of this tool in striving towards the goal of sustainable water management. Authors from Eastern and Western Europe, America, Australia and South Africa give a broad global context.
