Fig. S1 Comparison of the LAI and net photosynthetic rate of the baseline model, the simple optimization model and the competitive optimization model for different total canopy N contents and different water availabilities.

Fig. S2 Comparison of seasonal dynamics of LAI of model predictions with measurements.

Table S1 List of symbols for the model parameters mentioned in the main text, with their units, description of the variable, input value and the source of the input value

Table S2 List of symbols for the model variables mentioned in the main text, with their units, description of the variable and their equation number as mentioned in the main text

Methods S1 A full description of the canopy model; this canopy model calculates the net photosynthetic rate as a function of light, nitrogen, temperature, water availability and atmospheric CO2 concentration.
