    • An improved model to predict the effects of changing biodiversity levels on ecosystem function 

      Connolly, John; Bell, Thomas; Bolger, Thomas; Brophy, Caroline; Carnus, Timothee; Finn, John A.; Kirwan, Laura; Isbell, Forest; Levine, Jonathan; Lüscher, Andreas; Picasso, Valentin; Roscher, Christiane; Sebastià, Ma. T.; Suter, Matthias; Weigelt, Alexandra (Wiley, 2013)
      The development of models of the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem function (BEF) has advanced rapidly over the last 20 years, incorporating insights gained through extensive experimental work. We propose ...
    • Strong shifts in plant diversity and vegetation composition in grassland shortly after climatic change 

      Sebastià, Ma. T.; Kirwan, Laura; Connolly, John (Wiley, 2008)
      Questions: Is plant diversity in mesic grassland ecosystems vulnerable in the short-term to extreme climate change events? How rapidly can responses in vegetation composition occur in perennial grasslands? Are the ...
    • The Agrodiversity Experiment: three years of data from a multisite study in intensively managed grasslands 

      Kirwan, Laura; Connolly, John; Brophy, Caroline; Baadshaug, Ole H.; Belanger, Gilles; Black, Alistair; Carnus, Timothee; Collins, Rosemary P.; Čop, Jure; Delgado, Ignacio; De Vliegher, A.; Elgersma, Anjo; Frankow-Lindberg, Bodil E.; Golinski, Piotr; Grieu, Philippe; Gustavsson, Anne-Maj; Helgadóttir, Áslaug; Höglind, Mats; Huguenin-Elie, Olivier; Jørgensen, Marit; Kadziuliene, Zydre; Lunnan, Tor; Lüscher, Andreas; Kurki, Päivi; Porqueddu, Claudio; Sebastià, Ma. T.; Thumm, Ulrich; Walmsley, David; Finn, John A. (2014-06-11)
      Intensively managed grasslands are globally prominent ecosystems. Weinvestigated whether experimental increases in plant diversity in intensively managedgrassland communities can increase their resource use efficiency.This ...
    • Which trait dissimilarity for functional diversity: traitmeans or trait overlap? 

      de Bello, Francesco; Carmona, Carlos P.; Sebastià, Ma. T.; Leps, Jan; Mason, Norman W. H. (Wiley, 2013)
      Question: Many functional diversity indices require the calculation of functional trait dissimilarities between species. However, very little is known about how the dissimilarity measure used might affect conclusions ...
