LTER: Integrating plant community and ecosystem responses to chronic global change drivers: Toward an explanation of patterns and improved global predictions

Principal Investigators:

Kimberly J. La Pierre, Meghan L. Avolio, and Kevin Wilcox

Many global change drivers (GCDs) lead to chronic alterations in resource availability. As communities change through time in response to these GCDs, the magnitude and direction of ecosystem responses is also predicted to change in a non-linear fashion. We propose to examine whether plant community dynamics are predictive of shifts in ecosystem function across 101 long-term resource manipulation experiments (including 32 LTER experiments). Our working group will address three main objectives: 1) identify temporal patterns of plant community change... more
