7.5: Causes and Consequences of Biodiversity Change

I am a community ecologist interested into the processes that shape ecological communities and in the consequences of biodiversity for ecosystem functioning. At the moment, I am particularly interested in (1) the mechanisms that drive relationships between biodiversity and the provisioning of multiple ecosystem functions (multifunctionality), (2) how relationships between biodiversity and ecosystem multifunctionality differ among various spatial scales and (3) in the reciprocal causality between biodiversity and plant productivity change.
