  • Behavioural Endocrinology of Breeding Adelie Penguins (Pygoscelis adeliae)

    Ninnes, Calum Edward (The University of Waikato, 2008)
    Measuring hormonal changes is vital for understanding how the social and physical environment influences behaviour, reproduction and survival. Various methods of hormone measurement exist, potentially explaining variation ...
  • Comparing plasma and faecal measures of steroid hormones in Adelie penguins Pygoscelis adeliae

    Ninnes, Calum Edward; Waas, Joseph R.; Ling, Nicholas; Nakagawa, Shinichi; Banks, Jonathan C.; Bell, Dudley G.; Bright, A.; Carey, P.W.; Chandler, J.; Hudson, Q.J.; Ingram, J.R.; Lyall, K.; Morgan, Dai K.J.; Stevens, Mark I.; Wallace, J.; Möstl, E. (Springer, 2010)
    Physiological measurements of both stress and sex hormones are often used to estimate the consequences of natural or human-induced change in ecological studies of various animals. Different methods of hormone measurement ...
  • Does ‘acoustic anchoring’ reduce post-translocation dispersal of North Island robins?

    Bradley, David William; Ninnes, Calum Edward; Valderrama Ortiz, Sandra Viviana; Waas, Joseph R. (CSIRO Publishing, 2011)
    Context: Animal translocations are an important conservation tool; however, post-release dispersal can hinder successful population establishment. Playback of conspecific song attracts dispersing individuals in some species, ...
  • Environmental influences on Adelie penguin breeding schedules, endocrinology, and chick survival

    Ninnes, Calum Edward; Waas, Joseph R.; Ling, Nicholas; Nakagawa, Shinichi; Banks, Jonathan C.; Bell, Dudley G.; Bright, A.; Carey, P.G.; Chandler, J.; Hudson, Q.J.; Ingram, J.R.; Lyall, K.; Morgan, Dai K.J.; Stevens, Mark I.; Wallace, J.; Möstl, E. (Elsevier, 2011)
    To understand how the social and physical environment influences behaviour, reproduction and survival, studies of underlying hormonal processes are crucial; in particular, interactions between stress and reproductive ...
