IAI-Data-CRN_012_FLOMBAUM_DRF: Testing the biodiversity-productivity hypothesis in the Patagonian steepe
Entry ID: IAIDIS728

Abstract: We tested the biodiversity-productivity hypothesis that states that
increasing species richness results in increasing ecosystem
functioning. We created a richness gradient by removing species in the
Patagonian steppe. The Patagonian steppe is an ideal model ecosystem
because of the low natural diversity with 6 dominant species that
