"Ecohydrology & Hydrobiology" is an international journal that aims to advance ecohydrology as the study of the interplay between ecological and hydrological processes from molecular to river basin scales, and to promote its implementation as an integrative management tool to harmonize societal needs with biosphere potential.
The journal will publish high-quality science aimed at increasing the understanding of water–biota interplay in all types of ecosystems and exploring how this knowledge can be used to regulate hydrological and biogeochemical processes to enhance the carrying capacity especially of anthropogenically modified ecosystems. Research addressing one or several of the following issues will be of prime interest to the journal if it:
Leads to new insights into the interactions of water, nutrient and pollutant cycles with biotic components of ecosystems;
Employs this understanding for developing ecosystem biotechnologies and system solutions;
Identifies possibilities to integrate engineering infrastructure with ecosystem biotechnologies into system solutions at the catchment scale;
Translates transdisciplinary knowledge into decision-support tools;
Targets biodiversity, quality and quantity of water resources, ecosystem processes and functioning (including environmental flows), ecosystem services and/or ecosystem resilience as necessary components for enhanced carrying capacity;
Is policy-oriented and, within the scope of the journal, addresses the priorities and objectives of international initiatives such as the Millennium Development Goals, UNESCO's International Hydrological Programme, Water Framework Directive, etc.
