Decomposing the land-use specific response of plant functional traits along environmental gradients
Environmental conditions affect functional trait variability within communities and thus shape ecosystem properties. With the ability of plants to adapt morphologically and physiologically to changing abiotic conditions, ...
Participative Spatial Scenario Analysis for Alpine Ecosystems
Land use and land cover patterns are shaped by the interplay of human and ecological processes. Thus, heterogeneous cultural landscapes have developed, delivering multiple ecosystem services. To guarantee human well-being, ...
Plant functional assemblages as indicators of the resilience ofgrassland ecosystem service provision
Ecosystems provide a variety of ecosystem services (ES), which act as key linkages between social and ecological systems. ES respond spatially and temporally to abiotic and biotic variation, and to management. Thus, resistant ...
Historical trajectories in land use pattern and grassland ecosystem services in two European alpine landscapes
Land use and spatial patterns which reflect social-ecological legacies control ecosystem service (ES) supply. Yet, temporal changes in ES bundles associated with land use change are little studied. We developed original ...
Future impacts of changing land-use and climate on ecosystem services of mountain grassland and their resilience
Although the ecosystem services provided by mountain grasslands have been demonstrated to be highly vulnerable to environmental and management changes in the past, it remains unclear how they will be affected in the face ...
