The course covers eco-hydrological topics at the intersection of ecology and hydrology. Plant-water interactions and processes central in ecohydrological theories will be a focus.

This course is based on theory and field-based experimentation relevant for ecohydrology. Central ecohydrologic concepts will be considered using the Navarino Environmental Observatory (NEO) in Greece as a specific example. The goal of the course is to bridge ecohydrological theory and practical applications by placing NEO in an ecohydrologic framework and test field-based experiments to confirm this placement.

The course is part of Master's Programme in Hydrology, Hydrogeology and Water recources but can also be read as a separate course. The course is offered in collaboration with Navarino Environmental Observatory (NEO).

Due to the Covid-19 and the current pandemic, we will not be able to give the course as planned for the summer semester 2021.
