Red drum settle into shallow seagrass meadows during the larval stage. Day-night cycles in these habitats result in marked diel temperature and dissolved oxygen (DO) cycles, and it is possible that extreme fluctuations influence endocrine development and growth of larvae. Here, we described red drum interrenal and thyroid ontogeny and determine responses to environmental stimuli with special emphasis on settlement to explore possible role of hormones as mediator of directive environmental… CONTINUE READING
