dc.descriptionHow is resource use in ecosystems a driving factor of productivity? This chapter explores a theoretical model to help explain community assembly patterns, diversity and primary productivity in ecosystems around the world. It also asks how human activity disrupts these processes.
dc.description.abstract...We ask the question “is it possible to estimate the effects of human exploitation of ecosystems?” Under changing conditions the ecosystem is adapting the resource use permanently by adjusting the combination of its features. Productivity is the driver of recent conditions and biomass is storage; the existence of each is a precondition for the other. Species diversity can increase by immigration and evolution and decrease by emigration and extinction.....
