Breeding on the extreme edge: Modulation of the adrenocortical response to acute stress in two High Arctic passerines

Abstract

Arctic weather in spring is unpredictable and can also be extreme, so Arctic-breeding birds must be flexible in their breeding to deal with such variability. Unpredictability in weather conditions will only intensify with climate change and this in turn could affect reproductive capability of migratory birds. Adjustments to coping strategies are therefore… (More)
