This study investigates the coupling between the diversity within ecosystems and their stability. We create model communities of different species richness and expose them to climatic extremes by inducing artificial heat waves (FATI-system). The resistance to these extremes and the rate of recovery (resilience) are investigated at the level of the individual species, both empincally and via modelling.
