The management of watersheds is one of the most complex tasks that scientists, users and policy makers are confronted with, especially in recent years when freshwater resources have diminished and conflicts on water allocation have increased worldwide. The present book was written as a response to the need for systematic information on management-related aspects of the most important and controversially discussed basin in Mexico: the Lerma-Chapala watershed. Additionally, media exposure on shrinking water levels of Lake Chapala, the largest in Mexico, underlines the urgent need of a multidisciplinary discussion, including social, ecological, economical, technical, and legal aspects.
