Over the past two decades the importance of hydrological processes to ecosystems and the effects of plants on the process have become increasingly apparent. Such relationships are grouped under the term "Eco-hydrology."

Eco-Hydrology introduces and explores diverse plant-water interactions in a range of environments. Leaders in the field present reviews of the eco-hydrology of several ecosystems. This 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.
