HydroEco 2017 Conference on Hydrology and Ecology
18 - 22 June, 2017, Birmingham, UK
Ecohydrology as a scientific discipline has been emerging from the need to address the interactions and feedbacks between ecological, hydrological, geomorphological and atmospheric processes, and aims to understand and predict fast changing aquatic-terrestrial environments. Over the last decade, the scientific discipline of Ecohydrology has seen rapid technological and conceptual developments.
The 7th International Multidisciplinary Conference on: Hydrology and Ecology will focus on “Ecohydrology on the edge: ecology-hydrology-human interactions in a changing world”

9th Conference on River Basin Management Including all aspects of Hydrology, Ecology, Environmental Management, Flood Plains and Wetlands
19 - 21 July, 2017, Prague, Czech Republic.
River Basin Management 2017 is the 9th Conference in the series which marks the growing international interest in the planning, design and management of river basin systems.
River Basin Management includes all aspects of Hydrology, Ecology, Environmental Management, Flood Plains and Wetlands. Riverine systems are coming under increasing pressure due to anthropological and natural causes. Prominent amongst the problems affecting them is water scarcity and quality, which requires the development of improved methods for better river management.

Geomorphic & Ecological Fundamentals of river & stream restoration
7 - 11 August, 2017, Sagehen Field Station near Lake Tahoe, CA. USA.
Five-day introductory course that emphasizes understanding geomorphic and ecological process as a sound basis for planning and designing river restoration. It covers general principles and case studies from a wide range of environments. Incorporating insights from recent research in fluvial geomorphology and ecology, the course emphasizes developing predictive connections between objectives and actions, learning from built restoration projects, and developing restoration strategies and innovative management approaches to address underlying causes of channel or ecosystem change, rather than prescriptive approaches.

Natural Water Retention in Europe
A guide to support the selection, design and implementation of Natural Water Retention Measures.
Natural Water Retention Measures cover a diversity of meaures that are implemented by different sectors or considered in different planning processes dealing with water; flood risk management, biodiversity protection, climate change adaptation, or urban planning. Some of these measures aim to directly modify the ecosystem, while others focus on changes of practice of economic operators.
