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.
