Many studies of the biodiversity-ecosystem function (BEF) relationship have been conducted at restricted spatial and temporal scales and often without consideration of management intensity gradients. We propose to address two over-arching questions: How do BEF relationships change across spatial and temporal scales, from plot to continental and seasonal to multi-decadal? How do BEF relationships change across gradients of management intensity? Our project leverages existing plant diversity datasets that are common across the majority of LTAR, LTER, and NEON sites at both plot and field scales, as well as existing co-located measurements of ecosystem functions such as productivity, soil fertility, carbon, and invasibility. The addition of LTAR broadens the gradient of management intensity underrepresented in LTER and NEON, better addressing the need to understand how humans affect BEF across spatiotemporal scales.
