This is the website of Cate Macinnis-Ng’s lab in the School of Environment at the University of Auckland.

New Zealand’s vegetation is unique with 80% of plant species occuring nowhere else in the world. We are looking at the impacts of climatic conditions on plant functional processes like water use and carbon cycling. We use field, experimental and modelling approaches to explore how plants respond to environmental conditions like soil moisture, rainfall, light availablilty and atmospheric evaporative demand.
