Summary: 

Determining the best methods for quantifying environmental flow needs depends on what is to be studied as well as how the information will be used. The perspective of the scientist studying the environment will influence their impression of what water it needs. The hydrologist is likely to find hydrological methods most substantial, the vegetation ecologist will look for correlation between riparian (bank side) trees and surface water presence. The water manager wants a study that addresses their concerns about the watershed. But make no mistake: the environment is very complex, and its functionality depends on the health and integrity of all of its parts.
