Modelling vegetation dynamics in managed grasslands: Responses to drivers depend on species richness
Antoine Perasso and
Ecological Modelling, 2018, vol. 374, issue C, 22-36
In mathematical grassland models, plant communities may be represented by a various number of state variables, describing biomass compartments of some dominant species or plant functional types. The size of the initial species pool could have consequences on the outcome of the simulated ecosystem dynamics in terms of grassland productivity, diversity, and stability. This choice could also influence the model sensitivity to forcing parameters.
