The effect of pre-release captivity on the stress physiology of a reintroduced population of wild eastern bettongs

Batson, William; Gordon, Iain; Fletcher, Donald; Portas, Tim; Manning, Adrian


Stress is important in reintroduction biology because it can influence mortality, dispersal and recruitment and determine establishment success. As stress is unavoidable during reintroduction, it requires deliberate management. Release tactics (e.g. ‘delayed- and immediate-release’) are often selected specifically based on their presumed effect on physiological stress, yet, the actual physiological effects are seldom tested. Delayed-release involves pre-release confinement (in situ), or...[Show more]
