Welcome !

The main scientific challenge of the Freshwater Ecology, Hydrology and Management research group (FEHM-Lab) is to understand the hydrologic and ecologic processes for a better understanding of Mediterranean river basins, with a special focus to temporary rivers and its management. The intended outcome of such a challenge is to carry out fundamental and applied research that help to design tools for a better management of aquatic ecosystems and engage the general public to rise interest and awareness of the importance of these ecosystems.

The FEHM-Lab is composed by researchers from the Department of Evolutionary Biology, Ecology and Environmental Sciences (University of Barcelona) and the Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (CSIC).
