First meeting: 11.-14.01.2016
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).
