Dr. Isbell investigates how global environmental changes alter plant communities and ecosystem processes. This research bridges and extends previous investigations of biodiversity–ecosystem functioning relationships, biodiversity–stability relationships, nutrient enrichment, land use changes, alternative stable states, and economic valuation of ecosystem services.
