iEco-Hydrology is the first book to offer an overview of the complex relationships between plants and water across a wide range of terrestrial and aquatic environments. Leading ecologists and hydrologists present reviews of the eco-hydrology of drylands, wetlands, temperate and tropical rain forests, streams, and rivers and lakes. Contents include:
* background information on the water relations of plants, from individual cells to strands of plants
* the role of mathematical models in eco-hydrology
* explanations of how plants affect patterns and rates of water movement and storage in a range of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.
