Abstract

Jucker and Coomes claim that the relationship between plant species richness (biodiversity) and ecosystem multifunctionality (B-EMf) reported in our study changes along environmental gradients. We point out flaws in their analytical approach and then reanalyze our data to further demonstrate that the B-EMf relationship does not substantially change along environmental gradients.
