Preface - Mechanistic links between biodiversity and ecosystem function
1. A multitrophic perspective on biodiversity–ecosystem functioning research
2. Species contributions to above and belowground biodiversity effects in the Trait-Based Experiment
3. "Lost in trait space: species-poor communities are inflexible in properties that drive ecosystem functioning"
4. Terrestrial laser scanning reveals temporal changes in biodiversity mechanisms driving grassland productivity
5. Plant functional trait identity and diversity effects on soil meso- and macrofauna in experimental grassland
Remy Beugnon and Nico Eisenhauer
6. How plant diversity impacts the coupled water, nutrient and carbon cycles
7. A new experimental approach to test why biodiversity effects
8. Linking local species coexistence to ecosystem functioning - a conceptual framework from ecological first principles in grassland ecosystems
Kathryn E. Barry
9. Mapping change in biodiversity and ecosystem function research: Food webs foster integration of experiments and science policy
10. Transferring biodiversity-ecosystem function research to the management of ‘real-world’ ecosystems

Dr. Nico Eisenhauer is a soil ecologist with special interest in aboveground-belowground interactions and ecosystem ecology. He is professor for Experimental Interaction Ecology at Leipzig University and research group leader at the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) Halle-Jena-Leipzig. He studies the causes and consequences of biodiversity in global change and biodiversity experiments. Dr. Eisenhauer is speaker of the Jena Experiment and head of the iDiv Ecotron and the MyDiv Experiment.
