Abstract: UIBM aims to simulate plant diversity in herbaceous, grassland communities, which hold the majority of vascular plant diversity in Central-Europe. UIBM aims to simulate the plant diversity response to management intensification, nutrient load and climate change factors. It improves species distribution models, which restrict themselves to climate change. UIBM is a process-based model. This is an advantage over empirical/statistical species distribution models, which rely heavily on expert knowledge and suffer from methodological limitations. UIBM simulates local species composition of herb communities on a Braun-Blanquet minimum area. These are advantages over process-based dynamic global vegetation models, which are limited to large-scale plant functional type responses of natural vegetation and difficult to validate.
