Special Issue "Ecohydrology of Woodlands and Savannas"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2018).
Interests: watershed management; ecohydrology; hydrology of drylands; streamflow; erosion; runoff
Savannas, woodlands, and shrublands are expanding globally in a process described as “woody plant encroachment”. Change in vegetation physiognomy from herbaceous to woody dominance has important but not necessarily well understood implications for the water cycle. This Special Issue is focused on providing a state-of-the-art understanding and description of our current understanding of ecohydrology issues in savannas and woodlands. We are particularly interested in papers that provide a comprehensive synthesis of a topic related to ecohydrology of savannas and woodlands.
