... tolerance (assessed as the critical thermal maximum, CT max ). Here, we tested the hypothesis that chronic elevation of circulating cortisol levels reduces thermal tolerance in subordinate trout. In support of this hypothesis, subordinate trout that recovered from social stress for 48 h, a period sufficient...

A third hypothesis is that increased energetic investment in immunity results in the suppression of testosterone. We tested these hypotheses...

The percentage of CAc-positive PNA + ionocytes also was increased in trout treated with cortisol (10...
