Worldwide, ecosystems are affected by global change in the form of habitat loss, climatic warming, or species invasions. These effects are usually observed at the species/population level, with little studies focusing on effects at the community or ecosystem level. I will discuss how we can use ecological networks to observe, understand, and predict the consequences of global change at these high-order organization levels. First I will provide a general framework to explore the consequences of species loss within these networks. Second, I will present more specific examples of how to use food web and metabolic theory to observe and predict changes in complex ecosystems.
