The trophic state of many streams is likely to deteriorate in the future due to the continuing increase in human‐induced nutrient availability. Therefore, it is of fundamental importance to… Expand
Effects of plant phylogenetic diversity on herbivory depend on herbivore specialization
Summary 1. Pest regulation is an important ecosystem service provided by biodiversity, as plants growing in species-rich communities often experience associational resistance to herbivores. However,… Expand
Plant apparency, an overlooked driver of associational resistance to insect herbivory
Summary Herbivore regulation is one of the services provided by plant diversity in terrestrial ecosystems. It has been suggested that tree diversity decreases insect herbivory in forests, but… Expand
Unraveling plant-animal diversity relationships: a meta-regression analysis.
In the face of unprecedented loss of biodiversity, cross-taxon correlates have been proposed as a means of obtaining quantitative estimates of biodiversity for identifying habitats of important… Expand
Tree Diversity Drives Forest Stand Resistance to Natural Disturbances
Purpose of reviewForests are frequently exposed to natural disturbances, which are likely to increase with global change, and may jeopardize the delivery of ecosystem services. Mixed-species forests… Expand
A novel comparative research platform designed to determine the functional significance of tree species diversity in European forests
One of the current advances in functional biodiversity research is the move away from short-lived test systems towards the exploration of diversity-ecosystem functioning relationships in structurally… Expand

A rich body of theory has been developed to predict the effects of plant diversity on communities at higher trophic levels and the mechanisms underpinning such effects. However, there are currently a… Expand
Host range expansion of native insects to exotic trees increases with area of introduction and the presence of congeneric native trees
Summary Exotic tree species are widely used in forest plantations for their often high productivity and performance compared to native trees. However, these advantages may be compromised by… Expand
TRY plant trait database - enhanced coverage and open access.
Plant traits-the morphological, anatomical, physiological, biochemical and phenological characteristics of plants-determine how plants respond to environmental factors, affect other trophic levels,… Expand
Tree species composition rather than diversity triggers associational resistance to the pine processionary moth
Abstract The reduction of insect herbivory is one of the services provided by tree diversity in forest ecosystems. While it is increasingly acknowledged that the compositional characteristics of tree… Expand
