The field of aquatic environmental monitoring and assessment has experienced many changes and advancements over recent decades. These range from shifts in study design to more adaptive approaches, to the advancement of genetic tools and techniques to assess presence/absence, and to diversity. With continued threats to freshwater and marine ecosystem functions and ecosystem services from habitat modification and destruction, pollution, population decline, invasive species, and climate change, this Special Issue will provide a stage upon which basic and applied research in aquatic monitoring and assessment can apply new approaches and techniques to address the challenges of aquatic monitoring across variable spatial and temporal scales to address the topics listed above.
