Eco-hydrology: Plants and Water in Terrestrial and Aquatic Environments
Since 1980 the importance of hydrological processes in ecosystems and the effect of plants on hydrological processes have become increasingly apparent. These relationships can be grouped under the term eco-hydrology. This work introduces and explores diverse plant-water interactions in a range of environments. Ecologists and hydrologists present reviews of the eco-hydrology of drylands, wetlands, temperate and tropical rain-forests, streams, and rivers and lakes. The authors present background information on the water relations of plants, from individual cells to strands, together with a review of scale issues and the role of mathematical models in eco-hydrology. The book offers an overview of the complex relationships between plants and water across a range of terrestrial and aquatic environments, and should prove useful as an introduction to hydrologists, ecologists, conservationists and others studying ecosystems, plant-life and hydrological processes.
