Landscapes and water are closely linked. Water shapes landscapes, and landscape heterogeneity in turn determines water storage, partitioning, and movement. Understanding hydrological processes from an ecological perspective is an exciting and fast-growing field of research. Objectives The motivation of this paper is to review advances in the interaction between landscape heterogeneity and hydrological processes, and propose a framework for synthesizing and moving forward. Methods Landscape heterogeneity, mainly topography and land cover, has been widely incorporated into existing hydrological models, but not in a systematic way. Topography, as one of the most important landscape traits, has been extensively used in hydrological models, but mostly to drive water flow downhill. Land cover heterogeneity, represented mostly by vegetation, is usually linked with evaporation and transpiration rather than runoff generation. Moreover, the proportion of different land cover types is usually the only index involved in hydrological models, leaving the influence of vegetation patterns and structure on hydrologic connectivity still largely unexplored. Additionally, moving from ‘‘what heterogeneity exists’’ to ‘‘why-type’’ questions probably offers us new insights into the nexus of landscape and water.
