Title:
Plant species richness in montane grasslands affects the fitness of a generalist grasshopper species 
Abstract:
The two papers result from a longer-term study on biodiversity and ecosystem functioning in semi-natural grasslands along a gradient in plant species richness (BIOLOG DIVA-Jena). Stein et al. reports results from a 5-year program of applying insecticide and molluscicide to exclude herbivores above- and belowground. Excluding herbivores leds to shifts in the plant community that were stronger when belowground herbivores were excluded. Effects on plant biomass were generally small but depended on...    »
