Kristen E. Lukas, Ph.D.: CMZ

This study examines the behavioral and physiological correlates of stress in captive gorillas. The gorilla group at CMZ provides an opportunity to study these dynamics in an all-male group. The results will be compared among institutions and assist in gorilla management decisions.
