(German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) Halle-Jena-Leipzig) In addition to the diversity of tree species, the variety of animal and fungus species also has a decisive influence on the performance of forests. Forest performance comprises many facets besides timber production, such as carbon storage and climate regulation. The study is based on ten years of research in species-rich subtropical forests. A team of researchers led by iDiv and the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg has published the results in the new issue of Nature Communications.
