Plant-Trait-Based Modeling Assessment of Ecosystem-Service Sensitivity to Land-Use Change

Quetier, Fabien; Lavorel, Sandra; Thuiller, Wilfred; Davies, Ian


Evidence is accumulating that the continued provision of essential ecosystem services is vulnerable to land-use change. Yet, we lack a strong scientific basis for this vulnerability as the processes that drive ecosystem-service delivery often remain unclear. In this paper, we use plant traits to assess ecosystem-service sensitivity to land-use change in subalpine grasslands. We use a trait-based plant classification (plant functional types, PFTs) in a landscape modeling platform to model...[Show more]
