Ecosystem functionning and Ecosystem Services

Bundle of ES

The EcoPEPS team is interested in the functioning of grassland ecosystems and the various services they provide. The functioning of grasslands is analyzed through a functional trait-based approach (leaf, root, flower) at the species scale as well as the plant community scale. The main ecosystem services studied are:

  • Habitats for taxonomic and functional biodiversity
  • Forage quality
  • Soil carbon storage
  • Pollination

The EcoPEPS team focuses on identifying bundle of services and analyzing the relationships (trade-offs/synergies) between services to identify sustainable uses of grassland for both livestock farmers and the environment.
