The adrenocortical response to acute stress as measured by increase in plasma levels of corticosterone following capture, handling, and restraint over an hour was estimated in free-living male bush warblers at different times of the breeding season on their breeding ground in Chichibu, Honshu, Japan. Initial plasma levels of corticosterone showed a seasonal change, being moderate in April, highest in May to July and declined in late August. In contrast, the stress response was suppressed at the… CONTINUE READING
