Schellenberger Costa, D; Gerschlauer, F; Pabst, H; K├╝hnel, A; Huwe, B; Kiese, R; Kuzyakov, Y; Kleyer, M: Community-weighted means and functional dispersion of plant functional traits along environmental gradients on Mount Kilimanjaro, Journal of Vegetation Science, accepted (2017), doi:10.1111/jvs.12542
Question: How do community-weighted means of traits (CWM) and functional dispersion (FDis), a measure of trait variability, change in response to gradients of temperature, precipitation, soil nutrients, and disturbance? Is the decrease in trait similarity between plots continuous or discontinuous? Is species turnover between plots linked to trait turnover? Location: Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, Africa.
