The Dantzer Lab believes in openly and quickly sharing results, data, and methods from our research. As a step in this direction, we are now posting all submitted manuscripts to bioArxiv using the CC-BY license. We’ve just started this process with two preprints that are currently available at bioArxiv.
The first preprint was authored by former Dantzer Lab post-doc Freya van Kesteren and it shows how temporary experimental elevations in stress hormones in Kluane red squirrels cause major shifts in their neuroendocrine stress axis without negatively impacting their survival or reproduction.
The second preprint shows that dominant female meerkats that are stressed during pregnancy produce daughters that should have a lower chance of reproducing on their own but help their mother more.
