sToichNutNet - Linking ecological stoichiometry with environment‐diversity‐productivity relationships in grasslands

First meeting: 11.-14.01.2016

PIs:
Elizabeth Borer;
Anne Ebeling

Project summary:
Predicting the consequences of anthropogenic nutrient enrichment and biodiversity changes requires understanding relationships among many complex and often locally‐varying ecosystem responses. Ecological stoichiometry, the balance of multiple chemical elements, is a promising mechanistic approach for developing a predictive understanding of community and ecosystem consequences of global changes. This workshop will develop a stronger understanding of the links between ecological stoichiometry and environment‐diversity‐productivity relationships using previously unanalysed data from a unique, globally distributed experiment in grasslands, the Nutrient Network (NutNet).
