Defaunation is one of the main drivers underpinning biodiversity loss and disruption of ecosystem processes and function in many systems across the world. A prominent consequence of defaunation are trophic cascades, where extirpation of keystone species can alter top-down and bottom-up regulation of ecosystem structure. For example, the removal of consumers from ecosystems can release t...
Large mammalian herbivores play a critical role in structuring ecosystems and regulating key ecosystem functions. Yet, whilst for grassland ecosystems this role is well established, for tropical forest species much of this role remains obscure. Here we propose to experimentally test how large tropical herbivores regulate nutrient cycling, soil fertility and the dynamics of plant communi...
