Trophic answers to macroecological gradients

 

Climate change ranks amongst the greatest threats to biodiversity across the Earth’s biomes. Following changes in the climate, communities disassemble and reassemble in seemingly unpredictable ways. Still, the question of whether species respond to environmental changes individualistically or whether there is synchrony at higher levels of organization (e.g., functional groups) remains unresolved.

 

TrophicResponse aim to address this challenge with an interdisciplinary project that investigates, firstly, whether species respond synchronously to environmental change and, secondly, whether such synchrony (or lack of) can be generalized across observational scales and biogeographic regions.
