This fact sheet provides the summary information on the ecohydrology of the Great Ruaha River within the Rufiji Basin in Tanzania. It defines and explains the importance of understanding ecohydrology as a discipline that integrates the two areas of interest in river basin management namely ecology and hydrology. It also defines the terms ecology and hydrology. This fact sheet is therefore intended to add more facts into the current understanding of the interactions and interdependencies between hydrology and ecology thereby contributing to better management and conservation of our ecosystems and resources.
