Growth–trait relationships in subtropical forest are stronger at higher diversity
Abstract:
Understanding how species diversity affects plant performance is a central question in biodiversity–ecosystem functioning (BEF) research. At the community level, functional trait means and trait dissimilarities have been used to explain biodiversity effects, but with mixed success. To disentangle how functional traits explain community growth and underpin biodiversity–ecosystem functioning relationships, we should elucidate how plant traits affect individual growth across species richness levels, because the role of functional traits on growth depends on the ecological context of the individual.
Design:
We addressed this topic by using detailed data of twelve functional traits and annual growth for 529 individual trees of 31 species at five species-richness levels in a large forest biodiversity experiment in south-east China from 4–9 years after planting. Functional traits were measured at the end of the growing season from September to October in 2014 and 2015 in 59 plots from both sites. Originally, we planned to sample traits from four individual trees per species per richness level. However, due to logistical constrains (e.g. tree mortality in some plots) the final sample included 529 trees from 31 species.
