Corticosterone in feathers is affected by tropical forest management

In a collaborative project with several labs, we found that glucocorticoid hormones are potential mediators of carry‐over effects on population abundance linked to forest management. The study was conducted on a series of species in the tropical forests of Borneo, and involved measurement of corticosterone in feathers which was conducted in our endocrinology laboratory. The article was published in Functional Ecology.

Simone Messina, the first author of the paper, worked in our endocrinology laboratory to measure corticosterone in the feathers collected in Borneo.
