Abstract Because of the suppressive effect of stress on reproduction and health, it is important to evaluate potential stressors that may compromise captive breeding programs for endangered species. However, behavioral and physiological measures of stress are sometimes difficult to interpret, and their relationship to stress can be obscured by factors unrelated to stress, such as seasonal and diurnal patterns. Here we present findings for daily and seasonal variation in glucocorticoid (GC… CONTINUE READING
