Abstract

Ecohydrology had its origins in the Ecotone activity of the man and the Biosphere programme, but continues and expands today under the joint activity on water and Ecosystems promoted by UNESCO. The future role for Ecohydrology as an integrative discipline is clear when the emerging issues of Ecosystem management for sustainability are considered. The complementary efforts of the World Network of Biosphere reserves and the Ecosystem approach, promoted by the Convention on Biological Diversity provide an integrating framework around which the research agenda of Ecohydrology can be developed. On the broader environmental canvas the pressures on long-term viability of ecosystems coming from globalization also demand research solutions from the interdisciplinary approach of Ecohydrology.
