About this book

Forests cover approximately 26% of the world's land surface area and represent a distinct biotic community. They interact with water and soil in a variety of ways, providing canopy surfaces which trap precipitation and allow evaporation back into the atmosphere, thus regulating how much water reaches the forest floor as through fall, as well as pull water from the soil for transpiration.

The discipline "forest hydrology" has been developed throughout the 20th century. During that time human intervention in natural landscapes has increased, and land use and management practices have intensified. Forest Hydrology:
- Presents cutting edge thinking and assessments in forest hydrology across all latitudes and terrains, including state-of-the-art modelling techniques and methodologies
- Describes the latest challenges facing forest hydrology, such as increased occurrence of disturbance, due to extreme floods, drought, disease, and fire, potentially caused by climate change
- Is written by an internationally renowned team of scientists, engineers, and managers to give a well-rounded review of the subject

Forest Hydrology will be useful for graduate students, professionals, land managers, practitioners, and researchers with a good understanding of the basic principles of hydrology and hydrologic processes.

Media reviews

"There have been a number of books on forest hydrology before, and this one is seen as an update bringing together the latest information. And this it does very well. The 17 chapters cover a wide range of forest types (taiga to tropics), problems (changes in forest cover to wildfire) and techniques (modelling to geospatial applications)."
