|Abstract: ||Drought is an important driver of change in aquatic ecosystems and generally acts as a filter to
select biological traits capable of persisting under severe environmental circumstances. Drylands
are highly vulnerable to climate change and increases in climate variability. Consequently, an
increase in the processes of eutrophication, salinization, and habitat desiccation may be
observed in response to the loss of the hydrological connectivity. The International Network on
Limnology of Drylands (INLD) was created with the overall goal of understanding the functioning
and conservation status of aquatic ecosystems in drylands globally. INLD was made official in
2016 through the International Society of Limnology. Its objectives are to (1) assess the current
state of biological diversity in dryland aquatic ecosystems, (2) evaluate the multiple
environmental stressors acting in drylands, and (3) develop models to predict effects of global
change on drylands. This special issue, Limnology of Drylands, consists of 10 manuscripts focused
on the effects of environmental pressures, including global warming, on the biodiversity and distribution of aquatic communities in drylands.|
