Variation in corticosterone responses within and between individuals of Adelie penguins, Ross Island 2002-2003Entry ID: K034_2001_2005_NZ_6
Abstract: Corticosterone responses to handling were measured three times at four day intervals in 24 Adelie penguins to quantify variation within and between birds in these responses. Blood samples were collected 0, 15 and 30 minutes after each bird was picked up and corticosterone concentration were analysed. The data may provide information on changes in cortocosterone responses during fasting.

Access Constraints The data is only available through contact with the investigator.
The raw data is hormone concentrations and behaviour measurements. These data form the basis of ongoing publications, and are not available in any form.
The plasma samples are in the private laboratory freezers at the Institute of Veterinary, Animal and Biomedical Sciences, Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand. It is possible to provide plasma samples once the investigators' measurements are made.
