An updated version of G'DAY (Generic Decomposition and Yield model) with a revised decomposition model is presented. The model is parameterized to simulate C and N dynamics of Eucalyptus globulus stands. Data from litterbag studies on decomposition of eucalypt slash residues are used to calibrate the decomposition model. The whole system model is tested against data on tree growth and N mineralization of a first-rotation E. globulus stand in southwestern Australia.
