Local loss and spatial homogenization of plant diversity reduce ecosystem multifunctionality

Abstract:

Biodiversity is declining in many local communities1 while also becoming increasingly homogenized across space2-4. Experimental studies show that local plant species loss reduces ecosystem functioning and services5-10, but the role of spatial homogenization of community composition and the potential interaction between diversity at different scales in maintaining ecosystem functioning remains unclear, especially when many functions are considered (ecosystem multifunctionality)11-14. We presen...
