Inland waters are important ecosystems for both their biodiversity and the services they provide to humans. Monitoring their components is essential to improve the knowledge of structure and functions of these ecosystems and to assess their health status. Monitoring is also fundamental to evaluate the impact of anthropic pressures, such as water use for hydropower, irrigation, or drinking purposes, pollution due to present and past production and use of chemicals, and the introduction of allochthonous species. Only through the information coming from monitoring data can the management of water resources be planned or improved in order to continue to exploit them for necessary services with a lower impact on the freshwater environment. This Special Issue aims to: (i) provide information on tools currently applied for the monitoring of different (both abiotic and biotic) components of freshwater ecosystems, (ii) show results of monitoring carried out to improve the basic knowledge of these aquatic environments and their health status and/or to highlight the impact of different anthropic pressures, and (iii) collect new evidence about eco-friendly management strategies related to the use of water resources or to activities impacting on inland waters.

Monitoring and Management of Inland Waters


Aims and Scope

Inland waters are important ecosystems for both their biodiversity and the services they provide to humans. Monitoring their components is essential to improve the knowledge of structure and functions of these ecosystems and to assess their health status. Monitoring is also fundamental to evaluate the impact of anthropic pressures, such as water use for hydropower, irrigation, or drinking purposes, pollution due to present and past production and use of chemicals, and the introduction of allochthonous species. Only through the information coming from monitoring data can the management of water resources be planned or improved in order to continue to exploit them for necessary services with a lower impact on the freshwater environment. This Special Issue aims to: (i) provide information on tools currently applied for the monitoring of different (both abiotic and biotic) components of freshwater ecosystems, (ii) show results of monitoring carried out to improve the basic knowledge of these aquatic environments and their health status and/or to highlight the impact of different anthropic pressures, and (iii) collect new evidence about eco-friendly management strategies related to the use of water resources or to activities impacting on inland waters.
