CBA staff publish 2 science papers on reservoir ecology

CBA staff Michal Pavlik and John Cooper recently co-authored two papers on effects of reservoir operations on the physiology of migrant songbirds. Both papers are available online: Variation in plasma corticosterone in migratory songbirds: a test of the migration-modulation hypothesis and use as an environmental monitoring tool. Physiological and Biochemical Zoology 87:695-703. http://www.jstor.org/stable/10.1086/676937Physiological assessment of the effects of changing water levels associated with reservoir management on fattening rates of neotropical migrants at a stopover site: Conservation Physiology http://conphys.oxfordjournals.org/content/2/1.toc.
