Table 4 Mean (± standard error) stress hormone concentrations at capture and recovery for the four translocated seals

From: Development of an animal-borne “sonar tag” for quantifying prey availability: test deployments on northern elephant seals

  Cortisol (nM) EPI (pM) NE (nM) ACTH (pM)
Capture 181 (68) 273 (32) 1.75 (0.22) 4.1 (0.8)
Recovery 126 (26) 258 (12) 1.58 (0.15) 3.0 (0.2)
p value p = 0.56 p = 0.65 p = 0.51 p = 0.32
  1. p values are for a paired t test comparing hormone concentrations at capture and recovery
  2. EPI epinephrine, NE norepinephrine, ACTH adrenocorticotropic hormone
