Subproject Z2: Database and synthesis (1 Postdoc position)

Principle Investigators: Holger Schielzeth, University Jena; Anne Ebeling, University Jena

Summary: Stability of ecosystems refers to the persistence of ecological processes in a given area over a long period of time, even during periods of sudden or chronic climate change. One factor that contributes to stability via multiple mechanisms is biodiversity. Using a multitrophic multifunctionality approach, we will study whether plant diversity promotes two potential indicator variables of spatial and temporal stability, the covariance of ecosystem functions and the accumulation of consumer species.
