The complex plant-water interaction, from leaves to the biosphere, with its feedback to the climate system, is one of the most uncertain parts of the water cycle. It involves interactions of soil, plants, land cover, and land use, with hydrological processes, such as evapotranspiration, infiltration, and runoff. There are still many unsolved problems in the observation and simulation of these processes (e.g., evapotranspiration partitioning; effects of soil structure on hydrological processes; identifying runoff channels). Understanding these processes can greatly improve our knowledge of and ability to adapt to changes in water cycles in changing environments, especially in arid and alpine regions.
In this Special Issue, we welcome the submission of studies that investigate both facts and mechanisms related to plant-water processes, from leaves to the biosphere’s effects on hydrological processes, including soil-water dynamics, evapotranspiration, and runoff.
The topics covered by this Special Issue will include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Plant-water interactions in arid and alpine catchments;
- Advances in hydrological and ecohydrological monitoring techniques and modelling;
- Isotop tracers in plant-water interaction studies;
- Evapotranspiration partitioning;
- Soil structure effects on hydrological processes;
- Identifying flowpath of runoff;
- Impacts of human activities on the hydrological cycle.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind 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 semimonthly 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 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
