Short summary
We developed a process-based model for evergreen Mediterranean forests. We used multiproxy data including eddy covariance CO2 flux and annual growth dendrochronological time series. The model explicitly takes into account the influence of climatic variability to calculate photosynthesis and carbon allocation. We analyzed long-time acclimation processes and climatic trade-offs between the C-source and the C-sink. There is much potentiality to apply the model at a larger scale.
