Ecohydrology (EH) is the interdisciplinary subject of the ecology and hydrology and the science of the integrating hydrological processes with biota dynamics over varied spatial and temporal scales. It has been postulated in 1992 during Dublin International Conference on Water and Environment under the condition of the crisis of water. It complies with the two requires of sustainable development and is being favored by people as soon as being put out. It has not the orbicular theory frame and the methods systems through it is based on the abundant theory basement. EH is still on the path of hunting theory base presently and will be lasting on this path for more time in the future. It will get more quick advance after the consummating the basically theory.
