Note unusual day and time

An understanding of processes is important for projecting changes into the future, rather than simply extending correlative patterns spatially or temporally. In the ecological realm, there are few process based models that can inform decision making, in comparison with the field of earth system science for example. I will introduce a process-based model of ecosystem structure and function that is truly global in scope covering both the marine and terrestrial realms. The model represents the processes of interaction between organisms grouped by functional traits and captures the flow of matter and nutrients across trophic levels in what will be a stoichiometrically consistent manner.
