The importance of biodiversity to ecosystem functions such as biomass production and carbon storage is a key question in basic ecology, where it has been investigated largely through small-scale experiments and theory. It is also a key assumption in the conservation world that maintaining ecosystem services requires maintaining biodiversity. The role of biodiversity in ecosystem service provision in real-world landscapes is far from clear scientifically, however, in part because new conceptual approaches are required to even frame the question at these larger scales. In this talk I will discuss how my research program is tackling this problem.
