  3. ncbi Conventional functional classification schemes underestimate the relationship with ecosystem functioning
    Justin P Wright
    Ecol Lett 9:111-20. 2006
    ..These results suggest that we need a more nuanced understanding of how the diversity of functional traits of species in an assemblage affects ecosystem functioning...
  4. ncbi Biodiversity and ecosystem multifunctionality
    Andy Hector
    Institute of Environmental Sciences, University of Zurich, Winterthurerstrasse 190, CH 8057 Zurich, Switzerland
    Nature 448:188-90. 2007
    ..We conclude that because different species often influence different functions, studies focusing on individual processes in isolation will underestimate levels of biodiversity required to maintain multifunctional ecosystems...

    Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA 93106, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 104:18123-8. 2007
    ..Our results suggest that experiments to date have, if anything, underestimated the impacts of species extinction on the productivity of ecosystems...
