Quantifying the role of landscape fragmentation driving different facets of biodiversity remains challenging. Fragmentation operates simultaneously across multiple spatial scales, and its effects depend on the evaluated biodiversity facet. We use a spatially explicit, multiscale reproducible framework to evaluate how the relative effects of landscape fragmentation, compared to the effects of habitat loss, impact functional diversity and its relationship with species richness. We also generate a research agenda needed to propose mechanisms about how to enhance functional diversity in fragmented landscapes.
