(Editors) (). Forests, Water and People in the Humid Tropics. Several special cases of tropical forest hydrology are explored in chapters on tropical wetland forests and tropical montane cloud forests. Part III presents the hydrologic impacts of forest disturbance, conversion and recovery. In Part IV, the use of new tools and methods for evaluating the effects of land-use change are considered.

We would like to dedicate a Special Issue of Forests to discuss the interactions between forests and climate hydrology at the watershed level. We welcome research papers focused on the effects of forests and change in forests on hydrological regimes, water quality, and aquatic habitats in watersheds of different sizes.

‘Watershed services’ provided by forest ecosystems are receiving increasing attention in the research and policy arena. Changes in forest cover in tropical regions take many different forms Hydrology of moist tropical forests and effects of conversion book result in multi-dimensional changes in watershed processes: soil erosion rates, peak and low-flow levels, groundwater recharge rates, and water quality.

Forest Hydrology Forest hydrology combines aspects of two separate disciplines: hydrology and forestry. Hydrology is the science that studies the waters of Earth. Hydrology seeks to understand where water occurs; how water circulates; how and why water distribution changes over time; the chemical and physical properties of water; and the relation of water to living organisms.

Many of the human-induced pressures these regions are facing, e.g. fragmentation and deforestation, have been widely reported and well documented. However, there have been surprisingly few efforts to synthesize cutting-edge science in the area of tropical forest.
