Explaining ecosystem multifunction with evolutionary models

Cadotte, Marc W.; Livingstone, Stuart W.; Yasui, Simone-Louise E.; Dinnage, Russell; Li, , Jin-Tian; Marushia, Robin; Santangelo, James; Shu, Wensheng


Ecosystem function is the outcome of species interactions, traits, and niche overlap – all of which are influenced by evolution. However, it is not well understood how the tempo and mode of niche evolution can influence ecosystem function. In evolutionary models where either species differences accumulate through random drift in a single trait or species differences accumulate through divergent selection among close relatives, we should expect that ecosystem function is strongly related to...[Show more]
