Background and aimsResults from many biodiversity experiments have established evidence for positive effects of diversity on aboveground plant productivity. However, less is known about the relationships between plant diversity and belowground plant community characteristics and their consistency at altered environmental conditions.MethodsMonocultures, two- and four-species mixtures of two independent pools of four perennial temperate grassland species, each representing two functional groups… CONTINUE READING
