Endocrine profile of a kori bustard

SEZARC has expertise in extraction of hormone metabolites from animal fecal samples, which allows measurement of various reproductive parameters including pregnancy or onset of maturity.

In this profile, a male kori bustard shows an increase in testosterone coinciding with the breeding season over five years. After breeding season ends, testosterone falls back to baseline concentrations until the following year.
