Description Review article published in Methods in Ecology & Evolution. This draws on recent advances in measuring and using traits of different biota to predict ecosystem processes, and provides a new perspective as to how biotic traits can be integrated into biogeochemical models. These model frameworks will generate improved predictive capacity of how changes in biodiversity regulate biogeochemical cycles in terrestrial ecosystems. They will also assist in developing a new generation of process-based models that include plant, microbial and faunal traits and facilitate dialogue between empirical researchers and modellers.
