Although scientists have discovered many fundamental physiological and behavioral mechanisms that comprise the stress response, most of current knowledge is based on laboratory experiments using domesticated or captive animals. Scientists are only beginning, however, to understand how stress impacts wild animals - by studying the nature of the stressful stimuli that animals in their natural environments have adapted to for survival, and what the mechanisms that allow that survival might be. This book summarizes, for the first time, several decades of work on understanding stress in natural contexts. The aim is two-fold. The first goal of this work is to place modern stress research into an evolutionary context. The stress response clearly did not evolve to cause disease, so that studying how animals use the stress response to survive in the wild should provide insight into why mechanisms evolved the way that they did. The second goal is to provide predictions on how wild animals might cope with the Anthropocene, the current period of Earth's history characterized by the massive human remodeling of habitats on a global scale. Conservation of species will rely upon how wild animals use their stress response to successfully cope with human-created stressors.

About the Author:


L. Michael Romero is Professor of Biology at Tufts University.

John C. Wingfield is Distinguished Professor of Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior and Endowed Chair in Physiology at the University of California, Davis.

Professors Romero and Wingfield have spent their careers studying the endocrinology of wild animals in their natural habitats. A major focus has been on how animals cope with stressors in the environment. Between the two of them, they have studied over 100 different species covering all of the major vertebrate taxa (mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, and amphibians).

Review:


"This is a superb manuscript by an outstanding pair of scholars that provides valuable insights into the 'natural world' and a good integration of information from many domains of physiology, neuroscience, behavioral neurobiology and animal behavior."
--Bruce McEwen, Alfred E. Mirsky Professor and Head of the Harold and Margaret Milliken Hatch Laboratory of Neuroendocrinology, The Rockefeller University


Reading Tempests, Poxes, Predators, and People: Stress in Wild Animals and How They
Cope forces the reader to redefine what 'living' means for creatures that are living at the
margins of life... I can certainly recommend Tempests, Poxes, Predators, and People to everyone preparing for the future in our complex world, so full of interdependent species.
--PsycCRITIQUES
