2011 Research Highlights
Special Journal Issue Addresses Forest Water and Ecosystem Interaction Processes under Global Change
Sixteen papers published in Ecohydrology focused on watershed processes and impacts
Global change impacts forest ecosystems through altering ecohydrological processes. Climate change mitigation and adaptation policies that aim to solve global challenges require international collaboration. Based on presentations given at the Second International Conference on Water and Forests in a Changing Environment held in Raleigh, NC, in September 2009, Southern Research Station scientists working with EFETAC and the Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory published a special issue of Ecohydrology that collected 16 papers authored by experts around the world. This special issue, entitled “Forest Ecohydrological Processes in a Changing Environment,” includes papers examining the effects of forest, land use, and climate changes on ecohydrological processes across forest stand, watershed, and regional spatial scales. This collection offers scientists and forest managers a state of the art review of forest hydrology and climate issues and defined future research priorities in the 21st century.
