We cannot be the only ones to have noticed that in the past couple of weeks there has been a spate of papers on different aspects of the link between plant diversity and ecosystem functioning:
- The functional role of producer diversity in ecosystems.
- Does plant diversity benefit agroecosystems? A synthetic review.
- Why intraspecific trait variation matters in community ecology.
- Genotypic richness and dissimilarity opposingly affect ecosystem functioning.
Needless to say, we’re working our way through that little lot, so you wont have to. More soon. Unless, that is, someone out there wants to do the honours?
