    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; biodiversity; food webs; redundancy; relaxation time; stability; stochasticity; species deletion; species extinction; Biology; Biologi;

    Abstract : Many of the earth’s ecosystems are experiencing large species losses due to human impacts such as habitat destruction and fragmentation, climate change, species invasions, pollution, and overfishing. Due to the complex interactions between species in food webs the extinction of one species could lead to a cascade of further extinctions and hence cause dramatic changes in species composition and ecosystem processes.
