How does loss of biodiversity affect the functioning and stability of natural and managed ecosystems? This book presents empirical and theoretical research on this question. It aims to cut across the traditional division between community ecology and ecosystem ecology, and announces a new ecological synthesis in which the dynamics of biological diversity and the biogeochemical functioning of the Earth system are merged.
