Abstract:

Provides a general conceptual framework by some of the most prominent investigators in the field for how to link ecological and evolutionary approaches with functional diversity, to understand and conserve the provisioning of ecosystem services in aquatic systems. Rather than a methodological book, the work primarily concentrates on defining common areas, connecting conceptual frameworks, and providing examples through a more detailed discussion of a few empirical studies and projects; this helps illustrate key ideas and offers an outline of potential future directions and challenges expected in this interdisciplinary research field.
