We examined temperate grassland dynamics in response to simultaneous, multiple climate changes. Exposure to projected climatic conditions for 2080 had a progressively-negative effect on annual aboveground biomass production, driven primarily by ecosystem responses to warming. Climate treatment had no effect on plant species diversity, but variation in plant traits and functional diversity was linked to patterns in aboveground productivity.
