Studies investigating the hormonal regulation of aggression often focus on the role of the steroid hormone testosterone (T). These studies have generally found an association in temperate zone species between T and male aggression in a reproductive context. However, in most temperate zone species seasonal variation in reproductive context cannot easily be separated from concomitant seasonal changes in other variables, including territory location and partner presence. Therefore, we investigated… CONTINUE READING
