Experimental evidence for the effects of dung beetle functional group richness and composition on ecosystem function in a tropical forest
1. Much of the literature on the relationship between species richness or functional group richness and measures of ecosystem function focuses on a restricted set of ecosystem function measures and taxonomic groups. Few such studies have been carried out under realistic levels of diversity in the field, particularly in high diversity ecosystems such as tropical forests.
2. We used exclusion experiments to study the effects of dung beetle functional ...Expand abstract
