In 2001 Polish Academy of Sciences launched the International Journal of ECOHYDROLOGY & HYDROBIOLOGY. The Journal publishes papers concerned with the ecohydrology of rivers, reservoirs, and lakes, with emphasis on the functional interrelations between hydrology and biota. It includes original research papers, reviews, short communications, book reviews, and special issues integrating the new directions of research.
