Trophic complexity alters the diversity–multifunctionality relationship in experimental grassland mesocosms

Krishna Anujan, Shahid Naeem, Sebastian A. Heilpern, Case M. Prager & Brian C. Weeks
Plant diversity has a positive influence on the number of ecosystem functions maintained simultaneously by a community, or multifunctionality. While the presence of multiple trophic levels, or trophic complexity, affects individual functions, the effect of trophic complexity on the diversity-multifunctionality relationship is less well known. To address this issue, we tested whether the independent or simultaneous manipulation of both plant diversity and trophic complexity impacted multifunctionality using a mecocosm experiment from Cedar Creek, Minnesota, USA....
