Driven by mutualists: how declines in pollinators impact plant communities and ecosystem functioning
Using a landscape-scale experimental approach combined with observational gradients, mesocosm experiments and modelling, this research programme opens up to empirical investigation the impact of pollinator declines on plant community composition and the plant-mediated impact on ecosystem functioning in real landscapes.
