    Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning: Synthesis and Perspectives. Beth Middleton. This edited book explores the diversity–function debate, which has raged in ecology during the past several decades. Naeem et al., and Hector et al.) showing that production is higher in communities with higher biodiversity. The explanation for this Cited by: 2. Aquatic Functional Biodiversity: An Ecological and Evolutionary Perspective provides a general conceptual framework by some of the most prominent investigators in the field for how to link eco-evolutionary approaches with functional diversity to understand and conserve the provisioning of ecosystem services in aquatic systems. Rather than.

    Advances in Ecological Research, Volume 61, the latest release in this ongoing series includes specific chapters on the Mechanistic links between biodiversity and ecosystem function, A multitrophic, eco-evolutionary perspective on biodiversity–ecosystem functioning research, Linking species coexistence to ecosystem functioning - a conceptual framework from ecological first principles, Species contributions . Concern that the rapid anthropogenic erosion of biodiversity may undermine the delivery of ecosystem services has prompted a synthesis of community and ecosystem ecology over the last decade. Biodiversity-ecosystem functioning (BEF) research is central to this emerging synthesis, asking how biodiversity is related to the magnitude and stability of ecosystem processes.

Jes Hines. How biodiversity is perceived and maintained affects ecosystem functioning, as well as the fact how the goods and services that ecosystems provide to humans can be used. Recognizing biodiversity is essential to preserve wildlife. Furthermore, the measure, management and protection of ecosystem biodiversity requires different and.

Mar 13,  · Finally, the book takes research on biodiversity and ecosystem functioning further than it has ever gone into the human dimension, describing the most pressing environmental challenges that face humanity and the effects of diversity on: climate change mitigation, restoration of degraded habitats, managed ecosystems, pollination, disease, and biological invasions/5(2).

The relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning has emerged as one of the most exciting and dynamic areas in contemporary ecology. Increasing domination of ecosystems by humans is steadily transforming them into depauperate home-and-stone-investments.com: Michel Loreau.

This book presents empirical and theoretical research on this question. It aims to cut across the traditional division between community ecology and ecosystem ecology, and announces a new ecological synthesis in which the dynamics of biological diversity and the biogeochemical functioning of the Earth system are merged.

'The outline is excellent. This book represents the initial probing of this central ques­ tion. It will be followed by other volumes in this series examining in depth the functional role of biodiversity in various ecosystems of the world.

Stated in another way, what is the role of individual species in ecosystem function.

A REAWAKENING Asconcernsabouthabitatdestructionandthepotentialimpactsofthelossofbiodiversitymounted (Ehrlich & Ehrlich ; Myers ; Wilson), assertions that biodiversity loss could impact ecosystem functioning led to a conference in Germany and a book edited by Schulze & Mooney ().

Biodiversity is also considered a metric of ecosystem health. ecosystem function Processes such as decomposition, production, nutrient cycling, and fluxes of nutrients and energy that allow an ecosystem to maintain its integrity as a habitat.

Species diversity is a major determinant of ecosystem productivity, stability, invasibility, and nutrient dynamics. Figure 1: Relationships among species richness, functional composition, and ecosystem function. Increasing species number (a) increases drought resistance; high resistance is Cited by: Although biologists have directed much attention to estimating the extent and causes of species losses, the consequences for ecosystem functioning have been little studied.

This book examines the impact of biodiversity on ecosystem processes in tropical forests - one of the most species-rich and at the same time most endangered ecosystems on earth. Biodiversity in ecosystems is tightly linked to ecosystem functions such as biomass production, organic matter decomposition, ecosystem resilience, and others.

Many of these ecological processes are also directly implied in services that the humankind obtains from home-and-stone-investments.com by: 3.

Pitman. Kindle Edition $The concept of biodiversity continues to evolve and more recently it has been included in the idea of ecosystem services in that it is a form of ‘natural capital’ and thus underpins the functioning of ecosystems.
