Ecohydrology of water-controlled ecosystems: Soil moisture and plant dynamics



© I. Rodriguez-Iturbe and A. Porporato and Cambridge University Press, 2004. Addressing the connections between the hydrologic cycle and plant ecosystems, the authors build suitable mathematical models and apply them to studying the ecosystem structure. Response to rainfall and climate forcing is analyzed from different areas of the world, including savannas, grasslands and forests. The book will appeal to advanced students and researchers in environmental science, hydrology, ecology, earth science, civil and environmental engineering, agriculture, and atmospheric science.
