Faecal glucocorticoid metabolite concentrations and their alteration post-defaecation in African wild dogs, Lycaon pictus from South Africa
Non-invasive techniques for the monitoring of animal well-being, such as faecal hormone analysis, are increasingly becoming some of the most desirable methods for addressing practical conservation questions. Despite the ...
Non-invasive monitoring of adrenocortical activity in free-ranging Namaqua rock mice Micaelamys namaquensis from South Africa in response to anthropogenic land use and season
Stress in animals has been linked to behavioural and physiological changes in response to environmental, social and anthropogenic stimuli. Hence, stress-related responses in animals, especially in rodents, have been used ...
Using faecal glucocorticoid metabolite analyses to elucidate stressors of African wild dogs Lycaon pictus from South Africa
There are few stressful factors which have been investigated to affect adrenocortical function in the African wild dog (AWD) Lycaon pictus. Understanding what animals perceive as stressors is important for not only the ...
