In temperate meadow systems the strength of relationships between plant functional traits and functional diversity can be altered by land-use intensification within one species set. Species responses to the factors fertilization and cutting frequency are considerably variable causing inconsistency in species ranking. This result has implications for the use of species trait values from databases for predicting community trait syndromes.
