Fecal glucocorticoid metabolite analysis is a useful tool for monitoring adrenocortical activity in captive and free-ranging wildlife. Glucocorticoid metabolites may not be evenly distributed within fecal samples and this variability could affect the interpretation of glucocorticoid metabolite measurements. Furthermore, the precision (i.e., repeatability of measurements) of fecal glucocorticoid measurements from well-mixed samples is unknown. We collected fresh white-tailed deer (Odocoileus… CONTINUE READING
