Identifying Lands Suitable for Biofuel Feedstock Crops by Dynamic Modeling of Ecosystem Performance

Area circled was impacted by drought and this effect on ecosystem performance was captured by the actual ecosystem performance (GSN) and the weather-based EEP estimate. The 2006 drought effects were not and should not have been captured by the site potential, and the lack of underperformance anomalies within the circle indicated management responses to the drought were taken.
