MENDIONDO, EM.. Challenging issues of urban biodiversity related to ecohydrology. Braz. J. Biol. [online]. 2008, vol.68, n.4, suppl., pp.983-1002. ISSN 1519-6984.

This paper aims to outline challenging issues of urban biodiversity in order to address yardsticks related to ecohydrology, and with a complementary approach to eutrophication impacts. The vision of environmental services, urbanization's consequences and management aspects of water governance are also depicted. Factors of river restoration, environmental tradeoffs and socio-cultural constrains are envisaged through concept questions towards emerging aspects that figure out methodological guides, strategic challenges for stakeholders and inter-disciplinary opportunities. Examples from case studies on restoration and management, from experiences and lessons learned, are enclosed, with brief discussions and literature citation.

Palabras clave : ecohydrology; urban biodiversity; urban waters.
