abstract = "The original version of this Article contained errors in the Methods section {\textquoteleft}Target causal effect{\textquoteright}, in which terms were omitted from the mathematical definitions of the causal effect and average causal effect. These sentences incorrectly read “The causal effect of a change in richness from R′ to R″ on productivity P in plot i is defined as [(R″) − (R′)], where Pi(R″) is the potential productivity outcome when R = R″ and P(R′) is the potential productivity outcome when R = R′ (R′ ≠ R″).” and “The average causal effect of a change in biodiversity from R′ to R″ across all plots is [(R″) − P(R′)], where E[·] is the expectation operator.”. The correct version states “[Pi(R′′) − Pi(R′)]” in place of “[(R″) − (R′)]”, “Pi (R′)” in place of “P (R′)”, and “E[Pi(R′′) − Pi(R′)]” in place of “[(R″) − P(R′)]”. This has been corrected in both the PDF and HTML versions of the Article.",
