3 Wang et al. (2001) a maximum of 3 or 4 parameters can be determined. Wang et al. (2001) a maximum of 3 or 4 parameters can be determined. Braswell et al. (2005) out of 23 parameters were well-constrained. Braswell et al. (2005) out of 23 parameters were well-constrained. Xu et al. (2006) or 3 out of 7 parameters can be constrained, respectively under ambient and elevated CO 2. Xu et al.

16 Conclusions Conditional inversion can substantially increase the number of constrained parameters. Conditional inversion can substantially increase the number of constrained parameters. Cost function and information loss decrease with each step of conditional inversion. Cost function and information loss decrease with each step of conditional inversion.

24 Pool sizes with data and different SD

25 Conclusion Magnitudes of measurement errors do not affect parameter identifiability but influence relative constraints of parameters
