9780643068346: Ecohydrology: Vegetation Function, Water and Resource Management

Ecohydrology: Vegetation Function, Water and Resource Management describes and provides a synthesis of the different disciplines required to understand the sustainable management of water in the environment in order to tackle issues such as dryland salinity and environmental water allocation. It provides in the one volume the fundamentals of plant ecophysiology, hydrology and ecohydrology as they relate to this topic.

Both conceptual foundations and field methods for the study of ecohydrology are provided, including chapters on groundwater dependent ecosystems, salinity and practical case studies of ecohydrology. The importance of ecologically sustainable development and environmental allocations of water are explained in a chapter devoted to policy and principles underpinning water resource management and their application to water and vegetation management. A chapter on modelling brings together the ecophysiological and hydrological domains and compares a number of models that are used in ecohydrology.

For the sustainable management of water in Australia and elsewhere, this important reference work will assist land managers, industry, policy makers, students and scientists achieve the required understanding of water in landscapes.

About the Author:

Peter Cook is a leading geologist and a Professorial Fellow at the University of Melbourne (the University established the Peter Cook Centre for CCS Research in 2012). Previously he was the Foundation CEO of the Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Technologies (CO2CRC) and in 2004 first developed the concept of the CO2CRC Otway Project. Previously he was Director of the British Geological Survey. Professor Cook was Coordinating Lead Author of the IPCC Special Volume on CCS and has published many papers, articles and books on resource, energy and environmental issues. His book Clean Energy, Climate and Carbon was published in 2012.

Review:

"I would not hestitate to recommend Ecohydrology for undergraduate students and resource managers....Eamus et al. have helped readers understand landscape function from more than one disciplinary perspective. As a result, they have achieved their main objective and have done so in a clearly structured and well-written text that makes for pleasurable reading."
(Jane Catford Australian Ecology)

"The book is excellent for equipping the hydrologist with the tools of the trade. The authors need to be commended also for expanding their vision beyond steam gauges and hydraulic models to the role of vegetation in using water and contributing to restoring a degraded or badly eroded land mass."
