Dynamic feedbacks among tree functional traits, termite populations and deadwood turnover

Chao Guo, Bin Tuo, Ci Hang, Enrong Yan & Johannes H. C. Cornelissen
1. Changes in the composition of plant functional traits may affect ecosystem processes through influencing trophic interactions. Bottom-up control by plant species through food availability to animals may vary with time. However, such dynamics and their consequences for deadwood turnover are poorly known for detrital food webs. 2. We introduce a dynamic conceptual model of the feedback of (deadwood-feeding) termite populations, tree functional traits and deadwood decomposition. We hypothesized that tree functional diversity (in terms...
