Most vertebrates living in seasonal environments show seasonal reproductive cycles and diel rhythms. The rhythmicity in behavior and morphology is accompanied by diel and seasonal patterns of hormone secretions. In small animals, the investigation of diel patterns of hormones has been hampered because repeated blood sampling is difficult and may influence subsequent measurements. A possibility to avoid these caveats is to investigate excreted hormone metabolites instead. Here, we describe the… CONTINUE READING
