This paper will consider aspects that need to be taken into account for the practical application of hydrological connectivity, stressing the need of addressing an existing gap for the use of comprehensive field-based knowledge that includes both the structural and functional aspects of the system. The framework proposed is based on a nested approach, and requires an effective description of all relevant components of the system and an understanding of the processes and feedbacks taking place within and between different scales in relation to connectivity. This basic approach can lead to a more holistic understanding of real systems and contribute greatly to modelling and synthetic approaches. Such improved understanding can also be useful to respond to the increasing demands for Integrated Catchment Management based on scientific knowledge
