Authors: B J Tornabene; Creagh W Breuner; Blake R Hossack; E J Crespi


We exposed larval leopard frogs to increased salinity and RU486 (a glucocorticoid receptor antagonist) and tested their influence on waterborne corticosterone (baseline and stress-induced) and aldosterone and relationships between the two adrenal steroid hormones.
