We investigated whether the community weighted mean trait values (CWM) and functional divergence (FD) of key plant traits were associated with historical and present-day management regimes and landscape characteristics in semi-natural grasslands on Öland, Sweden. Our results indicate that grassland functional structure in this fragmented landscape reflects not only present conditions, but also the historical context of the grassland fragments.
