Faecal glucocorticoid metabolite concentrations in the free-ranging bandicoots (Perameles nasuta and Isoodon obesulus) of northern Sydney
Knowledge of how animals cope with their environment is fundamental to the management of free-ranging populations. Urban animals face increased competition for resources, habitat fragmentation and predation. These pressures may impact an individual's welfare by releasing glucocorticoid hormones in the blood through a response from the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, resulting in altered energy storage and utilisation. This study aimed to determine the applicability of measuring faecal...[Show more]
