  Hydrobiology (Greek, ‘study of life in water’) is the study of the interactions between living organisms and water. Water is generally a very stable environment for life, indeed, it is where life is thought to have originated. Organisms that live in or on water can profoundly affect its suitability for use by humans, while our use of water has an all too frequently deleterious effect upon the life which it supports. RB

See also biogeography; homeostasis.
