Abstract

Environmental and anthropogenic stressors interact to determine the composition and performance of biological systems. Given the interactive nature of multiple stressors and the plethora of metrics used for measuring ecosystem value, we advocate for discussion around efforts that integrate multiple stressor research with ecosystem multifunctionality. This new perspective will contribute to a better understanding of the emergent threats of global change on ecosystem functioning and provide valuable information concerning conservation practices and measures.
