Hypothesized slope of BEF relationships in the different treatments of the Field Experiment (see main text for details). Note that the ‘with plant history, with soil history’ only serves as a control in the Field Experiment, and effects of plant history can only be tested in the planned Ecotron Experiment. Redrawn after Vogel et al. (2019). ‘+’, with; ‘-‘, without.
