sCoRRE – Assessing functional consequences of community changes with global change using trait-based and phylogenetic approaches

First meeting: 09.-13.12.2019

Project summary:
Global change threatens to alter plant communities, with potential consequences for ecosystem function. We will investigate three ways to generalize community changes, scaling from changes in dominant species and their associated traits, to community-level traits, to phylogenetic diversity, and link these changes to productivity. We will develop a framework to enhance our understanding of the effects of changing environmental conditions on plant community assembly and production, and then test this framework using a global database of 101 manipulative experiments.
