Effect of dung beetle species richness and chemical perturbation on multiple ecosystem functions

Abstract:

1. The relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning is typically positive but saturating, suggesting widespread functional redundancy within ecological communities. However, theory predicts that apparent redundancy can be reduced or removed when systems are perturbed, or when multifunctionality (the simultaneous delivery of multiple functions) is considered.


2. We used manipulative experiments to test whether higher levels of dung beetle species richness enhanc...
