BioHydrology 2013 - "Water For Life"

Biohydrology is a forum for scientists from Biogeosciences and Hydrology. Under the motto „Bio Meets Hydrology“, our intention is to bring together ideas and conceptions of environmental specialists from biological, chemical and physical sciences with the hydrological sciences to discuss and to merge methods and conceptions. Invited speakers from four different fields of research will introduce the state of the art, and in joint sessions and discussions, the participants will identify the current research needs in terms of interactions between biology and hydrology in the light of the climate change and other anthropogenic effects on the environment.

BIOHYDROLOGY 2013 addresses many contemporary issues surrounding water scarcity, climate change and increase pressure on land.
The conference focusses on the interaction between biological and hydrological systems, including positive impacts such as water harnessing and flood mitigation, and negative aspects including threats to food production, water repellency and environmental degradation through unsustainable land use practices. Experts from hydrology, ecology, soil science, geography, biology, forestry and engineering will meet together in a forum designed to get different disciplines working together.

The conference focuses on the following topics:

1 - Biohydrological Processes at Various Scales

2 - Food and Water Security, Biodiversity and Climate Change

2.1 - Food Security, Water Scarcity, Climate Change and Biohydrological Impacts

2.2 - Interaction between Biodiversity and Biohydrology

2.3 - Doom, Gloom and Biohydrology - Fire, Drought and Flooding

3 - Coupled Land-Water Ecosystems

3.1 - Coastal Systems

3.2 - Freshwater Systems

3.3 - Water-to-Land Effects

4 -Role of Biogeochemical Interfaces in Hydrology

4.1 - The Role of Organisms for Interface Structure and How They Affect Hydraulic Processes

4.2 - The Role of Aquatic Biofilms
