Three markedly different models of multispecies competition-one mechanistic, one phenomenological, and one statistical-all predict that greater diversity increases the temporal stability of the entire community, decreases the temporal stability of individual populations, and increases community productivity. We define temporal stability as the ratio of mean abundance to its standard deviation. Interestingly, the temporal stability of entire communities is predicted to increase fairly linearly,doi:10.2307/3079056 fatcat:ijaqqru34rcwzgqkuzv6zm3oou
