Stress in Wild Animals and How They Cope

L.Michael Romero and John C. Wingfield

Oxford Series in Behavioral Neuroendocrinology

  • Unique synthesis of biomedical and ecological research on stress
  • Emphasis on stress responses in wild animals in natural contexts
  • Focus on stress responses as adaptive, not a disease
  • Application of stress to conservation of species
  • First time any of each of these concepts has been presented in a single place, much less all 4 together.
