Short summary
This paper presents a simple vegetation model for use as part of a climate or Earth system model. The model equations and their derivations are presented. We evaluate the model’s performance offline using near-present-day real-world datasets and deem it to be satisfactory. The model is useful because it is fast, easy to understand, and general in its formulations. It was developed to better simulate climate–vegetation feedbacks for answering paleoclimate research questions.
