The shape of the predator biomass distribution affects biological pest control services in agricultural landscapes

Noémie Ostandie, Lucile Muneret, Brice Giffard, Denis Thiéry & Adrien Rusch
1. Understanding how community composition of service-providing organisms affects ecosystem functioning is a key challenge in ecology. Although it has been proposed that taxonomic diversity and functional traits mediate this relationship, how several facets of community structure affect the delivery of key ecosystem services remains to be explored. 2. In this study, we investigated how abundance, taxonomic richness as well as the shape of biomass distribution in predator communities affect biological pest control services in...
