The FunDivEUROPE project

Biodiversity research of the last 15 years could demonstrate that multiple functions and services of an ecosystem are influenced by the number of species within this system. Most of these findings, however, are based on research within grassland systems. So science has to make the next big step and address those ecosystems that control a good portion of the carbon, nutrient and water balances of the earth: the forests. ...

FunDivEUROPE Data Portal

FunDivEUROPE utilized the data from the European sites of the global network of tree diversity experiments. Over the past decade diversity experiments of up to 8 tree species had been established and provide the unique opportunity to reveal causal relationships between tree species diversity and ecosystem functions. The experimental sites were complemented by a newly established network of more than 250 research plots in a variety of European forest types clustered in six regions across Europe from boreal to mediterranean conditions. ...
