The suffering of Eucalyptus trees

As one of the oldest objects sharing oxygen with us on this planet, having lived through time and survived environments one could not imagine,  today Eucalyptus trees are indeed suffering the consequences from a three-year-drought in Australia.

After noticing leaf declines and burnt or dead bodies of Eucalyptus trees, Scientists from the Western Sydney University labelled the phenomenon they were seeing ‘die back’ which is showing a serious threat towards the trees survival after enduring a three-year drought in Australia.

Lead author of the research based within the Western Sydney University’s Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment Dr Rachel Nolan joined us to chat about what this means for our ecosystem.
