In-plane thermal conductivity measurements of Nd2CuO4 were performed as a function of temperature and magnetic field. Results suggest that the excess heat conduction observed in a magnetic field large enough to close a gap in an acoustic magnon branch may be a general feature of quasi-2D antiferromagnets.
