Examining the drivers and regulating mechanisms of multiple ecosystem services has emerged as a central issue in ecology in recent years. In this paper, we start with the definition of ecosystem services, recent progresses and research priorities in the field. Then, we propose an experimental network to examine the key drivers of ecosystem services and relationships among multiple ecosystem services across grassland and desert ecosystems in northern China. The research network include conceptual diagram, research questions and objectives, field experimental design, ecosystem properties and processes observed across four grassland and desert sites. We review the major findings from the experimental network and future research directions in grassland and desert ecosystem services.
