Abstract

This paper reviews recent advances in field endocrinology, a focus as wellas a method in primatology and behavioral ecology that permits the examination of social behavior and life history through hormonal investigations innatural settings. Endocrine data complements the traditional behavioral. data collected by field scientists by providing quantitative measures for the examination of adaptive tradeoffs, costs of social strategies, and reproductive and social significance of mating events. Further, investigations ofthe physiological mechanisms of reproductive constraint provide tests of the adaptive significance of reproductive skew in cooperative and competitive breeders. Hormone data also can provide insights into the costs of competition and aggression and the role of temperament in individual reproductivesuccess and the evolution of social systems. New, noninvasive methods for the collection of this information have augmented and expanded field endocrinology through the use of techniques that do not require potentially confounding physical or physiological manipulations. Specifically, urine and fecal samples can be collected from free-ranging animals and contain gonadal and adrenal hormones that parallel profiles of serum hormones. Sampling, preservation, extraction, and assay methods for the analysis of excreted steroids are reviewed along with the species and questions to which these methods have been applied.
