Temporary streams in temperate zones: recognizing, monitoring and restoring transitional aquatic‐terrestrial ecosystems
Published Online: May 02 2017
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1223
Temporary streams transition between flowing, pool, and dry phases, and this environmental variability supports high biodiversity. However, human activities have altered flow intermittence regimes and reduced temporary stream health. Novel biomonitoring approaches combining assessment of flowing, pool, and dry phases are needed to characterize ecosystem health and identify restoration priorities.

Sustainable Development Goal 6: watering down justice concerns
Published Online: Apr 25 2017
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1224
Environmentalism includes concern for the future (sustainability), for other life‐forms (conservation), and for the well‐being of others (intragenerational justice). In the water sector, most of the problems are those of intragenerational justice, with some overlaps with sustainability and conservation concerns.

The terrestrial hydrologic cycle: an historical sense of balance
Published Online: Mar 31 2017
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1216
The ‘reverse hydrologic cycle’ as illustrated in the frontispiece of Johann Herbinius’ 1678, Dissertationes de Admirandis Mundi Cataractis Supra et Subterraneis. Herbinius assumed, as did most western scholars of natural history since Aristotle, that rainfall was not sufficient to produce the rivers of the world. He described the hydrologic cycle in two parts, one that operates above the land with rainfall enough to support plants and trees, while water supplied from below the land through the ‘subterranean abyss’ is returned to the mountains to form springs and rivers. The subterranean source of rivers is the sea, and thus completes the ‘reverse’ hydrologic cycle. We see Neptune, the Roman god of springs, lakes, rivers, and the sea playing an active role, with the Great Lord (Domini in Magna) standing by.
