Forest ecosystems at the “dry timberline” are seldom studied but offer important insights to the potential adaptation of forest to the warming and drying trends predicted for many regions. I will present some highlights of a case study based on 11 years of flux tower measurements in a pine forest in southern Israel that shows unexpectedly high carbon sequestration potential, largely offset by unique surface energy characteristics.
