Hydrology and ecology are inherently linked to each other and work together to shape our water supply and water quality as well as the habitat and food supply for fish and wildlife. Feedbacks between hydrology and ecology go both ways. For example, hydrologic processes shape the physical characteristics of wetlands creating suitable habitat for specific plants and animals. On the other hand, ecologic processes, such as vegetation reinforcing streambanks, can determine hydrologic structure.
