Project

Stress and herpes infections in the frigatebird (Fregata magnificens): an experimental evolutionary physiological approach.

In this project, I therefore plan to investigate for the first time the relationships among environmental changes, stress hormones (corticosterone), oxidative stress, immune cell counts and herpes virus infections, using nestling Magnificent frigatebirds living on the Ile du Grand Connétable as my model system.
