Global climate change, characterized mainly by global warming, is one of the biggest challenges to human society in the 21st century. As an important component of the earth surface system, the ecosystem provides essential materials for survival and development   Global climate warming has undeniably impacted the structure and function of terrestrial ecosystems (Oreskes ; Chapin et al. ), and the long-term performance of mountain ecosystems

-primary production in an ecosystem varies with time (seasonal and yearly variation in moisture and temp) EG/ ecosystems dominated by woody vegetation, NPP declines with age. As the ratio of woody biomass to foliage increases, more of gross production goes into maintenance   A large body of evidence supports the notion of positive biodiversity effects on ecosystem functioning evidence mainly originates from studies in which plot-level species richness was

Standing biomass, as an example, is the result of the physiological balance of the fluxes of photosyn-thesis and respiration, carbon allocation, organ-level growth 2 could enhance terrestrial primary production (14), although suitable plant-growing days, for example, decrease when changes in other abiotic factors are considered as well (15). In the ocean, el-evated temperature has been predicted to increase primary pro-duction in polar regions and decrease production in tropical areas (16).

A large body of research conducted during the past two decades indicates that ecosystem functioning is positively related to plant diversity 1,2,3, plants, we have limited knowledge of the relationship between microbial diversity and ecosystem functioning, particularly in terrestrial environments 5,ial communities play key roles in maintaining multiple ecosystem functions and Ecosystems worldwide are losing some species and gaining others, resulting in an interchange of species that is having profound impacts on how these ecosystems function.

However, research on the effects of species gains and losses has developed largely independently of one another. Recent conceptual advances regarding effects of species gain have arisen from studies that have unraveled the Cross‐ecosystem effects of terrestrial predators link treefrogs, zooplankton, and aquatic primary production Increasing tadpole density had a stabilizing effect on primary production: terrestrial predators can indirectly alter the structure and functioning of aquatic ecosystems—largely by altering the density and size dependence of
