Abstract

Plant diversity is one major factor driving plant productivity in temperate grasslands. Although decomposers are known to affect plant productivity, interacting effects of plant diversity and earthworms on plant productivity have been neglected in previous field studies. We investigated the effects of earthworms, plant species richness and the interaction between earthworms and plant species richness on several ecosystem functions.
