To help determine whether Hg had a causal effect on corticosterone, we investigated the impact of experimental Hg intake on the corticosterone stress response in captive juvenile loons. Juveniles were subjected to three different feeding regimes: 0, 0.4 and 1.2 µg Hg (as MeHgCL)/g wet weight (ww) fish. We then measured baseline and 30 min post-solitary confinement stressor corticosterone concentrations. The data set consists of times of blood draws and dietary Hg levels. Blood samples and data set were provided to the senior author for analysis.

We measured environmental variables at multiple spatial scales and their effect on three physiological health metrics of ornate chorus frog (Pseudacris ornata) tadpoles to identify potential correlates of population declines. To accomplish this, we measured corticosterone (glucocorticoid hormone associated with the stress response in amphibians) release rates, as well as the skin mucosal immune function (combined function of skin secretions and skin microbial community) and microbial communities of tadpoles from multiple ponds. We found that water quality and land cover characteristics associated with environmental degradation, including increased water temperature, conductivity, pH, land cover, and development...

The dataset includes the bird species, region where sampled, sampling site, capture location, mercury concentration in whole blood, lead concentration in whole blood, sulfur stable isotope concentration in blood plasma, carbon isotope concentration in blood plasma, whole blood ALAD activity, and fecal corticosterone concentrations.
