Florian Dirk Schneider and Ulrich Brose Beyond diversity: how nested predator effects control ecosystem functions Journal of Animal Ecology 82
Predator species richness affects the lower trophic level. In a full factorial microcosm experiment the authors decomposed the interactive effects of three arthropod predators on a basal springtail population by linear modelling. Nested effects of two predators explain the level of springtail density and microbial biomass.
