Ecohydrology Letters is a section for rapid dissemination of the most novel and timely research in ecohydrology that has broad and immediate international appeal. Ecohydrology letters are concise papers that merit urgent publication of exciting findings and have a strict 5000 word (five page) limit with no more than 25 references. Letters should contribute directly to advancing ecohydrological knowledge internationally and fit within the scope of the journal as determined by the editorial board.

The Ecohydrology Publication Award is named after Professor Ignacio Rodriguez-Iturbe to mark his outstanding career contribution to the development of Ecohydrology as a recognized field of scientific endeavor.

For 2016 the Ignacio Rodriguez-Iturbe publication award is given to the paper Sub-annual variability in historical water source use by Mediterranean riparian trees by C.I. Sargeant and M.B. Singer.


The Early Career Publication Award recognizes outstanding work by a scientist as first author within 6 years of completing their PhD (at time of manuscript submission).

The winner for 2016 is the paper Hillslope response to insect-induced land-cover change: an integrated model of end-member mixing by Bearup L.A., Maxwell R.M. and McCray J.E.

The quality of Early Career papers was extremely high, resulting in a very close decision and therefore it was decided that a further three papers should also be recognized as ‘highly commended’. The three papers are:

Alternative stable states of tidal marsh vegetation patterns and channel complexity
Moffett K.B, and Gorelick, S.M.

Groundwater connectivity controls peat burn severity in the boreal plains
Hokanson K.J., Lukenbach M.C., Devito K.J., Kettridge N., Petrone R.M. and Waddington J.M.

Glacier–groundwater stress gradients control alpine river biodiversity
Khamis K., Brown L.E., Hannah D.M., Milner A.M.
