In an attempt to synthesize the recent advances and perspectives on temporary river ecology, we organised a special session during the 2010 annual meeting of the North American Benthological Society in Santa Fe, NM, USA, an area where temporary rivers are common features of the landscapes. Those presentations and ensuing discussions among the session attendees ultimately stimulated the organisation of this special issue on temporary river ecology in Aquatic Sciences.
