This volume is dedicated to Biodiversity in ecosystems that 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 ecosystems.
The first part of this book will introduce different concepts and theories important to understand the links between ecosystem function and ecosystem biodiversity.
The second part of the book provides a wide range of different studies showcasing the evidence and practical implications of such relationships.
