ABSTRACT
Ecohydrology is an integrative science, which is focused on the connections between the aquatic ecosystems and the hydrological cycle (the quantitative and partially qualitative study of waters) and the interactions between them. In this paper is presented the ecohydrology, as scientifically base to use ecosystem properties, focused on the connections between the aquatic ecosystems and the hydrological cycle. The main purpose of the paper, based on the fundamental concept which says that the water availability is tightly related with the processes which occurs in ecosystems, is represented by the study of the hydrological regime of surface waters, depending on the processes from aquatic ecosystems at the catchments area scale. Are formulated and developed models for the integrative study hydrology-ecology, the steps for the study, starting from a data base, hydraulic, hydrologic, and biological models. In the end are presented the possibilities to integrate the ecohydrological models into the water resources management plan.
