Fecal glucocorticoid metabolite (FGM) analysis has received considerable attention in conservation biology because it has potential to be used as a noninvasive measure of stress in animals. There has been a recent and extensive literature describing the importance of technical, physiological, and biological validations of this technique, yet surprisingly little is known about how FGM concentrations change during chronic stress. Therefore, we experimentally induced chronic stress in both captive… CONTINUE READING
