The survival of a species is dependent on maintaining the health and well-being of individuals and populations. The production of hormones is the foundation of species survival by regulating reproduction and facilitating the maintenance of homeostasis. Researchers have been evaluating and monitoring gonadal, pituitary and adrenal hormones for decades and yet our understanding of these physiological mechanisms is limited to only a small percent (2-3%) of wildlife species. The International Society of Wildlife Endocrinology (ISWE) was initiated in 2010, out of a desire by wildlife endocrinologists to further our knowledge and expand our potential resources in this field of study. ISWE presents an opportunity for developing and applying non-invasive endocrine monitoring techniques much more broadly and systematically to help solve a variety of management problems for many zoo-held species. As well, these tools can also be used to monitor, better understand and manage the health and well-being of wildlife. ... [Information of the supplier]
