Tadanobu Nakayama is a senior researcher at the National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES), Japan. He was a visiting scientist at Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, United Kingdom. He has developed a process-based national integrated catchment–based ecohydrology (NICE) model, which includes complex interactions between canopy, surface water, unsaturated zone, aquifers, lakes, and rivers. He is the author of many books and papers on ecohydrological systems, including wetland ecosystem and nature restoration, global ecohydrology, and urban environment and water resources. He is currently conducting research to reevaluate the ecosystem in catchment/basin from the viewpoint of meta-ecosystem by considering global–local interaction and hydrology–ecology linkage. He is also constructing an integrated assessment system toward improving biogeochemical cycles along the terrestrial–aquatic continuum for global environmental change and tipping point early warning systems for sustainable development under the constraint of global security and environmental degradation. He is also on the editorial board of two journals Ecohydrology published by Wiley and “Ecohydrology & Hydrobiology” published by Elsevier.
