Contrasting stress responses of two co-occurring chipmunk species (Tamias alpinus and T. speciosus).

Abstract

Glucocorticoid (GC) hormones are important mediators of responses to environmental conditions. Accordingly, differences in GC physiology may contribute to interspecific variation in response to anthropogenically-induced patterns of climate change. To begin exploring this possibility, we validated the use of fecal cortisol/corticosterone metabolites (FCM) to… (More)
