To examine the reciprocal interactions among gonadal and adrenal steroid secretion, male tree lizards (Urosaurus ornatus) were subjected to two forms of stress. They were subjected either to the acute stress of being held in collecting bags for up to 4 hr or to the chronic stress of being maintained in individual cages in the laboratory for up to 3 weeks. In both cases, levels in stressed animals were compared to levels in free-living animals as controls. Under both conditions plasma levels of… CONTINUE READING
