Figure 3: Comparison of the effect of richness on the number of functions above a threshold revealed strongest effects for herbivores, and consistent effects across habitat.

From: Biodiversity enhances ecosystem multifunctionality across trophic levels and habitats

Figure 3

The effect of biodiversity (linear coefficient regressing the number of functions above a threshold against richness) plotted against the continuum of thresholds from 1 to 99% of the maximum observed level of functioning, for (a) dead organic matter, (b) detritivores, (c) primary producers and (d) herbivores. Blue lines represent trends from experiments conducted in aquatic systems, and green lines from terrestrial systems.
