Listen to a conversation between Cate Macinnis-Ng, associate professor in the School of Biological Sciences, and Niki Harre, professor in the School of Psychology on how trees respond to climate-related stress. Cateโ€™s speciality is kauri and drought, so this conversation is particularly topical given the recent dry spell. This podcast is by the Faculty of Science Sustainability Network and is a pilot for a possible series of short podcasts featuring sustainability topics.

Cate Macinnis-Ng is an Associate Professor in Biological Sciences at the University of Auckland. She is a plant ecophysiologist and ecohydrologist specialising in water and carbon fluxes of trees and other vegetation.

Niki Harreย is a Professor of Psychology at the University of Auckland. She is an expert in the psychology of sustainability.
