Effects of parasitic infection and reproduction on corticosterone plasma levels in Galápagos land iguanas, Conolophus marthae and C. subcristatus
TLDR
These findings support association between corticosterone plasma levels and reproduction and suggest that populations of land iguanas are differentially impacted by a tick‐transmitted apicomplexan hemoparasite of genus Hepatozoon, which could cause diseases and ultimately reduce fitness.
Use of inhalation anaesthesia for wild mammals in the field
TLDR
There are particular considerations when dealing with wild mammals which necessitate the selection of anaesthetics with very wide safety margins, and many agents and combinations which are commonly used are not completely reversible, giving prolonged recovery times.
High faecal glucocorticoid levels predict mortality in ring-tailed lemurs (Lemur catta)
TLDR
Faecal glucocorticoid levels are evaluated as predictors of individual survival probabilities in wild populations of ring-tailed lemurs at Berenty Reserve in Madagascar to suggest the ‘stress landscape’ indicated by glucoc Corticoid patterns may approximate the fitness landscape to which animals adapt.

A review of camera trapping for conservation behaviour research
TLDR
Three promising areas of study are discussed: (1) documenting anthropogenic impacts on behaviour; (2) incorporating behavioural responses into management planning and (3) using behavioural indicators such as giving up densities and daily activity patterns.

CUMULATIVE ECOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF SNOWMOBILES A Proposal by
Physiological monitoring of welfare for conservation of Arabian oryx, Oryx leucoryx
TLDR
Faecal incubation at 30°C for 3 days showed that EIA I measured more stable faecal glucocorticoid metabolites than EIA II, and has greater potential for application in field conditions, and its use is recommended in planning welfare improvements.

SEROSURVEY FOR SELECTED VIRAL DISEASES AND DEMOGRAPHY OF AFRICAN WILD DOGS IN TANZANIA
TLDR
The data show that wild dog populations, like those of other canids, can remain stable and demographically healthy despite exposure to CDV and CPV, and fluctuated little between 1992 and 1996.
The effects of anthrax on endangered African wild dogs (Lycaon pictus)
TLDR
Data suggest that African wild dogs possess a degree of resistance to anthrax, as shown in the case of an outbreak of anthrax among wild dogs in the Selous Game Reserve in southern Tanzania.

Evaluating adrenal activity in African wild dogs (Lycaon pictus) by fecal corticosteroid analysis.
TLDR
Fecal corticosterone immunoreactivity appears to reflect adrenal activity in the African wild dog and, therefore, may be useful for evaluating stress.
Radiocollaring and Stress Hormones in African Wild Dogs
TLDR
It is suggested that the benefits of studying wild dogs outweigh the potential risks, and studies of radiocollared wild dogs have identified ecological factors that regulate wild dog numbers, and this information will be of use in conserving the species.
Episodic and seasonal rhythms of cortisol secretion in male Eld's deer (Cervus eldi thamin).
TLDR
The present study represents the first detailed confirmation of episodic cortisol secretion in any cervid and indicates that Eld's deer stags lack a distinct seasonal rhythm of cortisol secretion and illustrates the need for frequent blood sampling in fully conscious individuals to ensure accurate assessment of adrenal status in cervids.
Physiological functions of glucocorticoids in stress and their relation to pharmacological actions.
TLDR
It is proposed that stress-induced increases in glucocorticoid levels protect not against the source of stress itself but rather against the body's normal reactions to stress, preventing those reactions from overshooting and themselves threatening homeostasis.
New Zealand Plants Suitable for Paper-Making
TLDR
A paper by Mr. T. Kirk, F.L.S., of Wellington, on some indigenous materials of New Zealand suitable for the manufacture of paper, featuring plants enumerated occur in great abundance in different parts of the colony and are being yearly destroyed to an enormous extent by the progress of settlement.
Pseudoreplication and the Design of Ecological Field Experiments
TLDR
Suggestions are offered to statisticians and editors of ecological journals as to how ecologists' under- standing of experimental design and statistics might be improved.
The immune-hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis.
TLDR
This review intends to examine the interactions between the immune system and the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and discusses products and components from theimmune system that stimulate or inhibit the HPA axis.
