Hydroecology and Ecohydrology
Editor: Dr Paul J. Wood
Editor: David M. Hannah
Editor: Jonathan P. Sadler
This state-of-the-art, research level text considers the growing volume of research at the interface of
hydrology and ecology and focuses on:
the evolution of hydroecology / ecohydrology
hydroecological interactions, dynamics and linkages
detailed case studies
future research needs
The editors and contributors are internationally recognised experts in hydrology and ecology from
institutions across North America, South America, Australia, and Europe. Chapters provide a broad
geographical coverage and bridge the traditional subject divide between hydrology and ecology.
The book considers a range of organisms (plants, invertebrates and fish), provides a long-term perspective
on contemporary and palaeo-systems, and emphasises wider research implications with respect to
environmental and water resource management.
Hydroecology and Ecohydrology is an indispensable resource for academics and postgraduate
researchers in departments of physical geography, earth sciences, environmental science, environmental
management, civil engineering, water resource management, biology, zoology, botany and ecology. It is
also of interest to professionals working within environmental consultancies, organizations and national

"I recommend this book without reservation to any hydrologist, ecologist and water resources manager
who works at the interface between hydrological and ecological sciences in riverine systems. Editors and
contributors succeed in bridging the traditional subject divide between hydrology and ecology."
