We are exploring the linkage between the hormones testosterone and corticosterone with behavior and physiology in various bird species. [more]
We investigate the physiological routes by which glucocorticoids determine telomere dynamics during growth and the resulting fitness consequences. [more]
Individuals vary significantly in how they respond to energetic challenges. [more]
How are glucocorticoids regulated before and during reproduction in vertebrates with a different pace of life? [more]
