First meeting: tba
Predicting the effects of global change on nature’s contribution to people (NCP) can be a
challenge, particularly in highly diverse regions. We will develop theory to examine whether
certain motifs - small subnetworks of interacting species - help stabilize NCP, and explore how
data quality can affect inferences. Collaboratively with local researchers, we will then apply
these insights to highly diverse but understudied Indian ecosystems to learn how local food
webs support NCP and how they may be affected by global change.
