I agree with Linklater that the application of stress biology to conservation needs more conceptual consideration, and am pleased that the subject has prompted discussion. Linklater proposes that the stress–distress model (Moberg, 2000) is superior to the models in Busch and Hayward (2009) and that conservation biologists should collect data on the physiological and behavioral responses to stress, not glucocorticoids titers. I believe that the more nuanced models presented in Busch and Hayward (2009), which include glucocorticoid data, are more useful.
