Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent decades watershed management has seen a paradigm shift from predominantly supply-based considerations of water quantity and quality to broader considerations of the ecological services provided by watersheds and a more holistic perspective interested in understanding and managing feedbacks between hydrological and ecological processes. In addition, attempts have been made to value multiple environmental services that arise from changes in watershed management.

Land use and climate change exert significant impacts on the ecology and hydrology of watersheds. The signals can be reinforcing (increased runoff from deforestation in a wetting climate) or opposing (decreasing runoff in a drying climate), depending on location. We have also entered a period where the stationarity of climate cannot be assumed and where there is evidence of increasing fluctuation between extremes.

We seek to understand how to observe and account for these processes in the ecological management of watersheds for the benefit of future generations and so this issue brings together both theoretical and applied studies on watershed eco-hydrological responses to land use and climate change.

Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Water is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs).
