Some applications where WEAP has been used for ecological applications are:
- To model páramo ecosystems: https://www.sei-international.org/publications?pid=2921
- To model floodplain inundation: https://www.sei-international.org/publications?pid=2816
- To model glacier evolution: http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/02508060.2012.706773
- To connect with a salmon population dynamics model: http://ascelibrary.org/doi/abs/10.1061/(ASCE)WR.1943-5452.0000194
- And the enhancement made to estimate indices of hydrologic alteration (IHAs): http://www.weap21.org/webhelp/IHA_Overall.htm

I hope you find this useful.
