Greater stick-nest rat pre- and post-translocation FGMs data
After validating an assay to measure faecal glucocorticoids (FGMs) in greater stick-nest rats (Leporillus conditor), we examined whether translocation caused a predictable change in stress physiology. We compared longer-term (1-5 months post-translocation) physiological responses across three source populations (remnant-wild, reintroduced-wild, captive-bred), and investigated effects of body condition and sex on FGMs.
