I propose to experiment in Costa Rican bromeliad microcosm communities that would help resolve some of the pressing issues in the field.
The aims of the proposed study are:
-To charactrise the microorganisms in habiting these communities;
-To understand how biodiversity loss affects ecosystem function in these communities;
-To understand how the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem function is modified by predation.
