Thyroid hormones (THs) are essential for metabolism and thermoregulation in arctic animals. Still, there is a lack of deeper basic knowledge regarding the regulation and functioning of THs in the environmental physiology of polar bears (Ursus maritimus). This is necessary in order to understand the true impact and consequences of the combination of stressors such as depletion of sea ice and endocrine-disrupting contaminants for the polar bear species. As a first step to gain insight into TH… CONTINUE READING
