Does the biodiversity multifunctionality-relationship depend on the number of considered functions?
The workshop will be a three-day meeting, separated into a 1-day mini-symposium followed by a 2 day hackaton focused on the importance of number of functions for the biodiversity -multifunctionality relationship.
The following will present during the September 4th on the mini-symposium
Lars Gamfeldt BECC, University of Gothenburg Sweden: General overview of the field and state-of-the-art.
Yann Hautier Assistant professor, Utrecht University Netherlands: Local loss and spatial homogenization of plant diversity reduce ecosystem multifunctionality. Using global grassland data to analyse if number of functions matter;
Sebastian Meyer postdoc Technische Universität München Germany: Biodiversity–multifunctionality relationships depend on identity and number of measured functions. Using experimental grassland data;
Eleanor Slade, Assistant Professor, Nanyang Technological University Singapore: Valuing ecosystem multifunctionality: the importance of considering species identity and interactions.
Caroline Brophy, Lecturer Maynooth University Ireland: Testing multifunctionality in the biodiversity and ecosystem functioning relationship: critique of the averaging method and development of an improved metric.
Lovisa Nilsson PhD candidate, BECC, Lund University Sweden: On ecosystem service cascades and multifunctional agricultural landscapes;
Fabian Roger postdoc, BECC, Lund University Sweden: Multifunctionality as the diversity of functions – a new metric for multifunctionality.
Anna Persson researcher, BECC, Lund University Sweden: Multifunctinoality in urban greenspaces.
Following the talks, we will have moderated general discussions including a panel.
