The Water‐Sensitive City: Implications of an urban water management paradigm and its globalization
Published Online: Feb 07 2018
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1276
Summary of evolving paradigms in water management over time: the left‐hand side boxes show elements of the recognized chaos (challenges) in the real world, while boxes (paradigms) on the right‐hand side illustrate the conceptualization of their conciliation. When moving upward, previously recognized challenges are not necessarily assumed to be solved. The three upper challenges (in grey boxes) are noted to be of institutional nature.

Subsurface plant‐accessible water in mountain ecosystems with a Mediterranean climate
Published Online: Feb 15 2018
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1277
In mountain ecosystems in Mediterranean climates, the storage capacity for plant‐accessible water often extends beyond the soil and into the deeper regolith. The extent and amount of plant‐accessible water stored at depth is controlled by coupled biologic and physical processes occurring throughout the Critical Zone.
