英文摘要: Abstract(#br)Increasing evidence suggests that ecosystem functions are strongly linked to morphological plant traits, like specific leaf area (SLA) and its variability, which serve as a proxy of functional diversity (FD). Functional diversity is rarely studied at regional scales, and its scale dependence is poorly understood. Capturing trait variations at distinct spatial scales and in differently managed grasslands remains challenging, mainly because a limited number of trait measurements are available and field campaigns are time-consuming. Here, we derived α- and β-FD indices based on SLA measured in the field and estimated from optical satellite data by using molecular absorption profiles of leaves in canopies. We inverted the 1-D columnar radiative transfer model PROSAIL using...
